Glencoe curved ridge in great winter climbing conditions

Jan 15, 2016

Beautiful winter climbing weather in Glencoe today. Gordon and I climbed Curved ridge in the traditional style, one axe only. (Gordons was even a good old Mountain Tech axe). A fair amount of snow and some ice forming to help out slightly. But the main thing was blue skies the route to ourselves and an easy descent down a scoured and safe Corrie Na Tulaich.

Half way up the ridge.
