Curved Ridge on Bhuachaille Etive Mor, Aug'15

Al Halewood was guiding our day on Etive Mor, heading up the famed 'Curved Ridge' route - a Grade 3 rock scramble (or 'moderate' rock-climb if you prefer). Al was leading Iain, John and Jill and being assisted by Ross (again after yesterday's wet day on the Aonach Eagach).

They had a leisurely ascent with mixed weather creating rainbows giving some fine views back down over Glencoe. After abseiling off Crowberry Tower, they pressed on to the Stob Dearg's summit in rain. Down to the lip of Core na Tullaich, Ross led John and Iain back to Altnafeadh (they'd done Etive Mor in its entirety before) and Al hiked with Gill south to bag a second Munro, Stob na Broige. 

Only 14 Munros to go Gill, enjoy them!
