October mountain routes





Neil and Al went to the Wst Face of Aonach Dubh to do B to F route on Saturday. This scramble ascends the buttress to the right of Dinnertime Buttress and traverses across the middle ledge (the fault line between the andesite and rhyolite layers) to No. 4 Gully. A shallow rib allows the gully to be climbed to the upper ledge where you can keep to the crest of F buttress or double back across towards Dinnertime to escape. From there we carried on over Stob Coire nan Lochain and Bidean before descending by Coire nam Beith. Yesterday Jamie B was out in glencoe on the zig zags and today he's with Stuart and Steve at Duntelchaig. Its been a moslty dry week here in lochaber and has warmed up a little since last weeks dusting of snow so there's still plenty of mountaineering to be doen before winter arrives.

Aha! I've found your blog now!There's a link to it from Google alerts)

Let me know if staff and clients find it useful: I'm thinking of setting up a blog of this kind for MLTUK. Good to see that staff are keeping it real!

Best wishes, Steve Long
