/ Large easy-angled slabs.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for big areas of slab that might be rideable?
Anglewise, the Coire Lagan ones are about as steep as I'd like to go though doubtless others would take it further.
I've already checked out the Great Slab in Coire an Lochan (on foot) and whilst there is a possible line on the east side, the smoothness and wetness of the rock gave me the willies.
Suggestions and pisstake welcome.
Saw a couple of blokes on the slabs below Coir a Ghrunnda a couple of years back. They seemed to be enjoying it, although they hadn't enjoyed the push up.
I once saw a guy come down the decent path off the back of the prow at Wilton on a mountain bike unicycle! Balls of steel!
That looks class.
Funnily enough I was in there (on foot) yesterday, on an Albannaich-Eun-Ghabhar round from Vic Bridge. I'm no mountain-biker, but some of the slabs on the south side of Albannaich could be ideal - I wandered up several hundred feet of them on the slope north of the Sron na h-Iolaire spur. Bit more awkward to reach than the Coire Lagan / Northern Corries / Bowfell options, but a grand bit of country.
I've seen a video of one of the big slabs in Avon Gorge, Bristol being ridden. Slippery limestone for added entertainment....
Riding from Victoria Bridge through to Loch Etive takes one over some impressive exposures of slick rock. Not quite Moab but reminiscent of it in a small way.
