A fast traverse of the Aonach Eagach, Glencoe

Sep 21, 2016

On the way home, Paul (see previous blog post) wanted to do the Aonach Eagach in Glencoe. So we did. Despite it being a bit greasy and damp in places it took us all of four hours floor to floor!! Another extremley rapid day in the hills.

A quick view in the mist.
