Face Blasted on Aonach Beg

Today Jamie and I head off from Glen Nevis up to Raw Egg Buttress on Aonach Beg. The weather forcast suggested foul weather coming in at midday, so we had a super early start so we could walk in and get most of the climbing done before it got nasty. So we were planning on climbing Raw Egg Buttress (IV,4), however a quick change of line due to no turf pro, we made a bit of a varied journey through the crag and ended up climbing some pitches of REB, Top Gun (V,6) and also a pitch of ground, as far as I can see, hasnt been climbed (need to check). Has anyone got a good photo topo of the crag? The climbing was top quality, conditions were perfect, turf was bomber, belays spacious, ice was forming well and we were relatively sheltered from the wind until we got to the top. Well worth the walk in!
