East Ridge of Stob Ban

Snow overnight cleared to give a nice calm day. I was out with Andrew and Andrew today, one less name to remember.

We walked in to the Mamores to the East Ridge of Stob Ban. A great route, 200 m long with grade II and III steps. We looked at a variety of anchors with the opportunity for them to try a bit of leading near the top.

The new snow was quite damp all the way up the route with old neve found higher up. We descended via the North Ridge negotiating the tricky steps then the steep path back to the car.
