Hidden - 2nd O/S - 25/Aug/14

Started up Pinnacle Ridge and bailed out down An Stac screes. An incredible coverage of good neve on the crest right along until I descended from Bruach Na Frithe. FL shot up in the afternoon and snowpack softened with wind picking up. A soggy bivi at Bealach na Glaic Moire. Thankfully snow had firmed up again overnight, a wonderful neve romp nothing harder than Grade III, in the mist but not much wind until the In Pin. It started snowing and as I started up Sgurr Mhic Choinnich on powdered rock in a blizzard decided it wasn't fun anymore. A bit annoying with good snow conditions and time to finish but an amazing experience nontheless.

Amazing route, completed the ridge in three days. Mixture of snow types but it was certainly full on winter on the ridge.

An amazing adventure - probably deserves an alpine grade. We got as far as An Stac when the weather and conditions took a serious turn for the worse.
