Ledge route.

With a good forecast for yesterday and a strong group from Outward Bound we decided to take the group up Ledge route for their expedition. We walked from the top car park and made our way to below Carn Dearg Buttress where we set up camp and dropped off any kit we weren't going to need for the route. We made our way up over the top of Moonlight Gully Buttress and traversed across No.5 gully and made our way to the top. The group did well and we topped out two and a half hours after we left the tents. The cloud and rain then came in but this didn't dampen the groups spirits and we headed onto the summit and then down towards the abseil posts and descended into Coire Leis. Back to the tents for dinner and an early night to escape the rain. This morning we just had a lazy morning, packed up and walked back out. A great effort from the group of 12-13 year olds and a trip I don't think they will forget that quickly.
