Today I went scrambling with Vicky on the East-North-East Ridge of Sgorr Bhan above Ballachulish. Vicky had never climbed a Munro before so we chose a scenic, interesting, but not too difficult route to a high summit. As an added bonus, it was my first time in these mountains also.
Vicky coped well with the at times loose scrambling on the ridge, and as we climbed the clouds parted to offer excellent views over Loch Leven and down Glencoe. All in all a very good day in the mountains: sweeping ridges, a bit of scrambling interest, and a tremendous summit with expansive views. There is a little snow left on the open face of the mountain but none whatsoever on the walk up the ridge.
