Damp on Buachaille Etive Mor
Alistair and 4 of his pupils from Williamwood High went with Tristan and I to Curved Ridge today. Any snow from the last 2 days had melted in the mild drizzle which was never heavy but ever present today. Nonetheless we had an atmospheric time ascending up past Rannoch Wall (tat on the block on January Jigsaw a mute splash of colour... testament to some climbers' mini epic this damp summer) and the guys made good enough time that we skirted north around Crowberry Tower to climb to it's small summit platform. From there it was a short step to the top of the mountain where we felt a light but chilly breeze for the first time all day. Well done to the team for many of whom it was a first munro.
