Curved Ridge

Lovely morning colours

Today was just perfect.  Great weather, great conditions under foot, great company, great craic, summit too ourselves, amazing view and all finished off with a pint in the Clachaig.  I was out with Gus and Mike, both have been doing their fair share of gully climbing such at Number 4 on Ben Nevis and various others.  Today we opted for something a little more rocky and ridgy and Curved Ridge was the perfect choice.  It was hard enough to keep them on their toes and also showed them where their limit is and what they need to do to progress.  After climbing Curved Ridge, over a pint, we created action plans of what they need to work on and how to go about it.  Next time they will be on the sharp end digging out all the placements and protection!  A brilliant day.

Making good progress
