January Jigsaw

Another great day out climbing on my favourite mountain in Glencoe.  This time I was joined by Kyle and Ben on Buachaille Etive Mor.  With only a little bit of sport climbing under their harnesses they wanted to climb a classic traditional route.  We headed up Curved Ridge to the base of the mighty Rannoch Wall.  The weather  wasn't great today but fortunately we were in the lee of it and sheltered from the wind and the rain.  The rock was pretty much dry all the way up.  We had company on the face, a team were on Agag's Groove so we climbed January Jigsaw (Severe) instead.  There were several teams on Curved Ridge too all making the most of the sheltered aspect.  From the top of our route we did two abseils back to our bags and descended curved ridge and wandered back to the car.
