Aonach Eagach

It started nice
 Today I had a super day with 3 regular clients Katya, Sam and Aide.  In the past we have done the Cuillin Ridge, An Teallach traverse plus several days in the NW so we started off with a big day in Glencoe.  The Aonach Eagach was high on Sam's list, Katya had an aborted attempt in the summer and Aide was up for anything.  With 70mph winds forecast we knew it would be a bit of a battle but it was great non the less.  On our ascent to Am Bodach, the weather was looking quite pleasant, Aide even put a spot of sun cream on!  As we got to the technical sections the wind and rain came.  We pressed on ticking both Munro's and got back to the car at 5.30.  A good 8.45 hour day.  We decided on a big day today as tomorrow is looking pretty damp so a late start is on the cards.  Kenny climbed D Gully Buttress and several teams were in SCNL.
Then got windy...

Then got cloudy

Then got wet, windy and cloudy!
