Curved Ridge, Glen Coe

Yesterday I returned to Scotland, finishing the long journey from Switzerland that started on Saturday evening.

It was nice to return to snow, ice and blue skies - all making for a pleasant day. I was working for Abacus Mountaineering with David and Hannah. We made an ascent of Curved Ridge, making good use of the ice pitches on the approach and in the gully start. On the ridge itself the fresh snow has been well stamped down with good neve below. There was also a helpful (and very wide) track on the descent into the corrie.

Sam, Dave and Max were all instructing other parties on the ridge, making for a sociable atmosphere.
