/ Top Gun, Aonach Beag
Not expecting a spate of replies, this whole buttress seems to be shrouded in mystery and doesn't attract the attention it deserves, possibly because of the killer walk-in. But it is good...
Me and Mike B went to do this in 1999 but we couldn't be bothered climbing up the slope below the crag.
But Jamie... You hate UKC being a source of route information do you not? Where is the spirit of adventure? :p
It does go on a bit, doesn't it? Al and I thought we were making good time until we hit that! Fantastic spot though - remote Lochaber!
Very funny.. I'm less interested in doing the route than the history. It was an Alan Mullin route which to my knowledge hasn't been repeated - it would be rather poignant if it had gone the same way as its author...
Its still there according to its other author who was there last week.
(you should have tried the north face walk in before the gondola!)
