The great ridge, Garbh Bheinn

Jul 09, 2015

Rab and I had a great day on one of Scotlands finest ridge scrambles today. The great ridge on Garbh Bheinn. Didn't see anyone all day and had great weather. Perfect. As usual, the initial slabs, ribs and grass ledges were interesting and I don't think iv'e ever been up the same initial route twice. We found some steeper slabs to the left of the grotty chimney which were quite stiff but once up them it eased. The ridge itself is well worth it, perfect rock and never too hard.
