Dalmally Horseshoe / Ben Cruachan (Feb 2018)

4 February 2018

Cracking day, almost completely still on the summit of Stob Diamh, with Loch Etive and Loch Awe glassy calm. The snow level may be a little higher than Drumochter or on the Ben but it was still crampons on from 650m or so with just enough soft slab on top of hard neve to make it quite interesting in places. This was really a long way round to confirm a Corbett ascent – Beinn a Bhuiridh, which i may or may not have done about 35 years ago, long before i had any thoughts of ticking that particular list…
