Another week with these great clients and what a treat I had on Monday. The weather was kind to us and after reaching the top of Stob Coire Odhair with 18 intrepid clients (see picture of them all in the mist), I managed to leave the majority with James, and took seven ‘fitties’ off to bag a second peak.
I love the route up Stob Ghabhar from there and the wee airy scramble along the aptly named Aonach Eagach. By descent we forgo the tricky scramble down the side of the waterfall and the possibly very wet river crossing and instead headed directly South towards Clashgour and picked up the track home from there.
On Wednesday we once more set up the Tourist route to the top of Ben Nevis. Connor from Abacus Mountaineering was also there….
We managed to stay together as one group despite my best efforts to separate the groups, and had fun on the ascent. There has been significant snow melt since I was last there, but still enough to have a play on. The gullys are still complete as shown by the crazy guys who skiied them at the end of July (posted on my facebook).
A great group and time for a wee Radler in the Ben Nevis Inn before we were picked up.
