Beinn Alligin Traverse
Final day for the winter mountaineers James, Simon and Eric and we wanted to finish off with a ridge traverse. With the Forcan Ridge out of the question (Simon had done it last year), we opted for the tricky horns on Beinn Alligin. I wanted the guys to take a lead into the day so they were navigating route finding, leading and breaking trail throughout the day. The tricky sections they were route finding, helping each other and looking after the team whilst I secured them with a rope. It is a fantastic ridge traverse, topping out on two Munros and we had fantastic views of Liathach and the surrounding mountains. A truly stunning experience. This week I have been working for Moran Mountain. I back off to Fort William for a wee while but back up in the North West soon.....with a new camera!
