/ Ben Nevis and Glencoe - Ian Clough 1969
It came out in March 1969 with 2 reprints in April 1969 & April 1970. Replaced by the MacInnes revised version, in March 1971. Couldn't say how rare it is I'm afraid, but I have a copy of the 2nd reprint which I don't remember paying a lot for. As you say, some nice diagrams, better IMHO than the ones in Ed Grindley's subsequent book (1981).
I also have a copy - bought in 1970! My most prized possession is however Bugs McKeith's(1968 I think) guide to Creag Meagaidh
1966 in fact. You are showing your age now.
I raise you my 1960 copy of The Etchachan Club's guide to North East Coast of Scotland, far better access info than recent guides. I didn't buy it then!
1960?!... Is it in Doric? :-)

You're right Mike - it is 66. I acquired it in 68, the year of my first visit to Meagaidh. Back in the days you could doss in Aberarder farm barn, or the wee plastic/fibreglass hut among the boulders by the lochan which I think was destroyed by a storm around this time.

Fortunately not, otherwise the following description would be lost on me:
Work diagonally out to the right over a bulging overhang - for all practical purposes not provided with holds (wings and rubber suckers are helpful).
