Buachaille Etive Mor

John and I had a great day today with a Falkirk Outdoors Mountaineering team of John, Kim, May, Neil and Wilson. We visited Buachaille Etive Mor climbing Lagangarbh Buttress on dry rock and taking in the two good Moderate wall options near the top.

It was dry and sunny all day with light winds and haze building in the afternoon. There were very few remaining snow patches on the hill and only a small section of snow to cross to return in to Coire na Tulaich. There was more snow cover visible on the east facing sides of Bidean nam Bian and Stob Coire Sgreamhach.

Two Days in Sunny Glencoe

For the past two days I have been out in Glencoe with the Falkirk High Tops Team.

On Wednesday Lucy, Bob and I climbed January Jigsaw on Rannoch Wall. The crag was in excellent condition.

Yesterday, Isobel, Duncan, Alasdair, Loren, Dani, John and I completed the Sron na Lairig scramble before continuing over Stob Coire Sgreamach and returning to the van. The ridge was very dry and great fun in these conditions.
