Dreich in August in Glen Coe


Well, August is proving to be fairly moist. Today we set off to scramble on Curved Ridge as an alternative to the Aonach Eagach Ridge. It was okay and at least dry until we summited and then the heavens cascaded down. Still, a good day out and the high pressure promised by the Met Office on Wednesday might just offer a chance of success on the Aonach Eagach. Watch this space! This day was part of the Walklochaber week and guests choose which day trip they wish to take part in. On this day it was felt that the large amount of exposed down climbing in wet and windy conditions on the Aonach Eagach would be too much to handle.
