Dave: Today was my second day with James, unfortunately we were unable to rock climb due to damp conditions, but it didn’t stop us from having an adventure. The Aonach Eagach is always an adventure and the andesite (my least favourite rock) when wet is something to respect and be cautious with. No surprise that with today’s forecast of medium winds and heavy showers we didn’t see anyone until the last Murno.
James is a competent scrambler and very fit which meant our traverse was 4 hours and 27 min which included a lunch break and some slow rope work, I think this is fastest time I have had guiding the Aonach Eagach! I look forward to getting out with James this winter for more adventures.
Our 2023 dates for traversing the Aonach Eagach are live on the website, have a look and book now.
