Date: Sunday 7th October 2007
Apologies to the purists out there as this report does not, in fact, get to the summit of a Munro. It does cross the 3000ft mark though and as it reaches a top I put it here.
Our walk up Beinn a Chrulaiste a few months ago had been good fun and as we climbed we were looking at the Devil’s Staircase and the ridge beyond running west to join the Aonach Eagach with interest.
Driving back from the NW early doors and mulling over walk options and thought we’d give this ridge a go.
This walk then turns W to follow the ridge line right along to Am Bodach and the start of the Aonach Eagach ridge.
Big advantages in this area are immediate views and sun, unlike a lot of Glen Coe’s deep glacial valleys that can be enclosed and dark.
The views encompass:
Then a sudden proliferation of people after seeing no-one along the ridge. Could carry on onto the Eagach if transport allowed. We didn’t push on to Meall Garbh as it involves some moderate scrambling and we climbed this earlier in the year. Some mist was bubbling up from the glen.
A really nice sunday walk, nil technical, excellent views from start to finish.
