No Not the Ben 13th March Colin and Roger on Curved Ridge.Today we took the short day option and made an ascent of Curved Ridge on Buchaille Etive Mor. This was Colin's first experience of serious scrambling/ rock climbing which he took in his stride. For Roger who has a crossing of the Cuillin Ridge to his name, a chance to explore the rock in Glencoe and to refresh his rope work. Down by 4pm meant that coffe and cake were a must.

With a cloud inversion at 1300m it was only those who topped out on Britain's highest mountain who got the suprise.Tommorow Colin, Adele and Roger will be heading for the Classic Curved Ridge on Buchaille Etive Mor

BMC Winter Skills 10/11th March Team members ready for their second day This weekend eleven members from different mountaineering clubs in the UK joined together at the BMC Alex Macintyre hut in Onich for a weekend of introductory winter mountaineering skills. Despite the apparent lack of snow and mild conditions we found plenty of hard snow to practice the essential skills for winter hill walking in the Scottish Mountains
The feedback from the weekend was extremely positive and enabled mountaineering club members from different parts of the country to come together and share the winter experience.
Thanks to all the particpants; instructors Sam Leary and Zac Poulton who worked along side Adele and the BMC for facilitating the course.
A similar course next year will be offered by the BMC.
Busy with Bucket seats and buried axes!
