SCNL via The Zig Zags

Today Susan was up for something a little more hands on and some more snow, so I decided to take her up the Zig Zags on Gearr Aonach and then we continued up onto the East ridge and the down the north ridge of SCNL. It rained for a considerable amount of the day and only briefly fell as snow higher up. Susan learnt the basics to navigation and managed to navigate us both off the summit and back into the corrie floor. Crampons were not really needed, however we did put them on for the last rocky sections of the East ridge, just to give Susan a feel for scrambling over rocks with spikes on her feet. After a quick walk down we went and discussed the weekend over a nice cool shandy in the Clachaig.
