Slippery when wet on the Aonach Eagach

Today I was working for Steve Fallon on the Aonach Eagach. Ron, Dave, Carl and I drove through Glencoe with a low cloud base and high humidity and near the top of Am Bodach we met Heather's team who had decided to save the Ridge for a drier day. we pressed on in hope of the forecast coming true and brighter weather. The rock was greasy but the guys coped well and not long after the pinnacles the cloud began to lift to give us some views. A good day out with 3 great guys… and the pint in the Clachaig was as welcome as ever at the end (cheers Ron)!
