Report by Paul Higginson:
Potentially fantastic weather window,
sweaty ascent ahead of the pack,
January jigsaw (Buachaille Etive Mor) fun beckoned.
Anna led, Simon & Paul separate seconds, two ropes,
first pitch then rainstorm.
Ab off followed by rope recovery challenge.
Exit up curve ridge, summit & ridge walk,
descent via tourist path.
Communal meal – spag bol then Jamaica ginger cake dessert
Evening’s entertainment climbing around tables
Niall fell off
Ridge behind Ballachulish – Sgorr Dhonuill & Sgorr Dhearg.
Great scramble in good weather, great views,
steep friable descent path into “Gone with the wind” landscape.
Rendezvous in pub waiting for kamikaze drive back.
