/ Skye, Glen Coe, Nevis Conditions
TR isn't that hard, its just long and commiting, Castle Ridge is a shortish III but perhaps technically harder than TR. All subjective as ever! Perhaps Ledge Route would fit the bill?
Was in Glencoe over the last couple of days, although I wasn't up there the Aonach Eagach would have been in stonking nick with blue windless skies. choose well, have fun!
All the upper routes in the Ciste are good, and quite a few would fit your description.
The white line / No2 Gully buttress/ No2 Gully / South and central gullies on the Ciste crag are all in good condition. Just be aware of the Ciste crag gully cornices if it goes super warm.
Thanks for the advice, We were thinking maybe Aonach Eagach on Saturday or Sunday. Long and committing are two things my partner on Monday will probably want to avoid! I was thinking about Ledge Route or No. 2 Gully. It's encouraging to hear that the higher stuff is still in.
