On saturday we were blessed with fine weather and in response to requests from the team it was to be a day focussed on the 'dark art' of shortoping. We went to Lagangarbh Buttress on Buachaille Etive Mor. I chose this venue because whilst it gives good scrambling ground there are few obvious belays and the it presents a wide range of challenges when it comes to making judgements about how to protect people in ascent and descent. i can recommend this route and its neighbours (Broad and Great Gully Buttresses) as a change from the ever popular Curved Ridge and North Buttress if you are a confident rope-less Grade 2 Scrambler with good routefinding skills.
Its sunday night now and I'm at Glenmore Lodge where I'm observing an MIA Assessment for the next 5 days.
