Topic - Ben Lui SE Ridge - ???

TheseKnivesMan - on 12 Oct 2013
I'm a pretty experienced hillwalker and climber, done all ridge classics An Teallach, Torridons, Fiachaill Ridge etc no problem. Me and a friend climbed Ben Lui today by the SE Ridge as described in Scotlands Mountain Ridges by Dan Bailey. (I've been out the game for past year or so right enough but been etting back into it recently :D)

I found it absoloutely terrifying at the crux section, I got cragfast for 20 minutes and had to downclimb and we walked up via the much flatter South (?) ridge. It just seemed to be horribly steep choss and loose vegetation spiralling upwards and upwards above that huge drop into the coire to the right and tens of metres vertical at a time below me sometimes.

Has anyone else found this route to be pretty pants filling?? :s
