More sunshine on D Gully Buttress and Curved Ridge

Second day out with Nigel, Tracey and Matthew and with slightly weary legs today we opted to go to Buachaille Etive Mor. Matthew owns the excellent Guisachan Guesthouse in Fort William- well worth checking out if you are looking for accommodation.

Leaving Fort William today Loch Linnhe was shrouded in low cloud and mist but by the time we reached the Ballachullish Bridge we were out in the open sunshine again. This set the tone for another hot day. Nigel got the chance to put some of the ropework he had seen yesterday into practise leading the team up the lower section of D Gully Buttress. I took over for the upper section and we made rapid progress up the top part of Curved Ridge to our lunch spot and beyond to the summit. Another cracking day.
