Aonach Eagach.

After a week at Outward Bound last week working with a group from Webster's High School from Angus, which we had fantastic weather for I was on the Ben on Saturday working for Abacus Mountain Guides on a charity walk.

Today I was out with Dan and Dawn who booked me for the Aonach Eagach but we had agreed to have a two day weather window to give us the best chance, yesterday was horrible but today was a stunning day. We made quick progress up to Meall Dearg and were greeted with the sight of the rest of the ridge just lifting out of the cloud.
 
 
Enjoying the pinnacles.

We carried on along the ridge with the occasional snow shower but the cloud just hung to the Southern slopes all day giving us great views North. A few other teams out but they were either in front or behind so it felt like we had the ridge to ourselves. The snow showers did put a bit of snow down but nothing worth the walk up yet but looks like things might be better by the end of the week.
