/ Recomend me some routes.....
Ledge Route on the Ben. Best in its grade (II)
North East Ridge of Stob Ban.
North East Ridge of Aonach Beag.
Sron na Lairig.
There must be more than that!! thankyou for those ideas,,,,
Ben Nevis - Castle Ridge III
Ben Nevis - Ledge Route II
(also Tower Ridge III - but for the experienced unless you want an epic)
Carn Dearg Meadhonach East Ridge II (& potentially combined withe Ben via Carn Mor Dearg Arete) - approach from Nevis Range uplift
Aonach Beag - NE Ridge III (remote-ish but definitely mountaineering!)
Ring of Steall grade I
+ plenty down in Glen Coe...
Felt like III to me. I often mention Green when someone else suggests Tower Ridge.
it's neither the best or alpine like.
Not meaning to be funny, but you are going to one of the top winter climbing venues in Scotland, covering a vast array of climbs at the grades you are talking about. Forum recommendations are fine, but you really need to get yourself a guidebook. (SMC Scottish Winter Climbs should do the trick).
Yep. More like most overhyped 20m of climbing in Glen Coe
Don't get it do you?
> Felt like III to me. I often mention Green when someone else suggests Tower Ridge.
Don't think it has a mountaineering feel either. Great route though.
I have a guide book..................just wanted some recommendations away from the normal named routes.....but hey sorry!
He doesn't but I do.........! Thanks for that....
Well, that's not quite what you asked for originally, but hey ho. Aonach Eagach ridge is a grand day out in good winter nick.
Ah, you were being sarcastic. Fair enough.
> Don't think it has a mountaineering feel either.
> Why not?
It's a gully.

I just noticed you only joined the forum recently. Saying Dorsal Arete is a default joke answer for loads of questions.
What is the best Grade V in Glencoe? Well Dorsal Arete of course.
NE Ridge Stob Ban
Sron na Lairig
I imagine some of the routes on the West Face of Aonach Mor are quite alpine but I have not done them. Perhaps someone else can confirm?
