Aonach Eagach Ridge (winter)*** II
[View along the ridge, 2 kb]The winter traverse of the Aonach Eagach, like the same outing in summer, is a mountain day of classic stature. Long and exposed, parties must be competent and efficient to avoid benightment.

Not ideal conditions with wet heavy snow, verglas rock and no visibility. Still good fun and a challenging day out. Abseiled down the initial crux as we weren't confident down climbing.

Not really a winter traverse but not a summer one either. Crampons and axe were needed for a while but then turned into a scramble missing the scattered icy sections. Great day out none the less with perfect weather all day. Will get back next season for a "proper" winter traverse

Good neve to start with, before everything got covered in 10cm of fresh powder. Moved together for most of it, and short roped Alex on some of the steep downclimbs, and pinnacles. 7:30hrs car to car.
LJC - Lead - 16/Feb/15 with Alex

Did on the first day of an SUMC trip with Liam. Started nice and early and finished in plenty time. Moved together for the Pinnacles but it felt pretty easy (good practice with the rope at least!) Great day out!
Euan Todd - 14/Feb/15

Great day out with James. Roped up from the initial abseil and moved together till after the pinnacles. Snow was ok, but soft in places, hardly used the axes. needed a 50m rope to be safe on abseil and although we took a rack didn't use it. However did see plenty of others using gear. For anybody wondering what to take a few slings and maybe some hex's should cover it.
barney@helmshore - 14/Feb/15 with James W

Pretty bare conditions for the time of year, with lots of crampons against bare rock. Great fun though. Moved solo for most of it but roped up and moved together over the pinnacles

Purely - 24/Feb/14 with Mat Adams, Rubisco

Soloed 90% of it. Snow was loose in places. Sean ended up upside down hanging by one leg thanks to a snow ridge collapsing. Some laugh after the fact. Ended as being one of the worst days I've ever spent in the hills from a dehydration and exhaustion point of view. Not sure what happened, I've done tougher and longer multi day trips and been much better. Great way to spend my birthday nonetheless.

Great climb in a week of pretty terrible weather. Walk in has a few parts of deep snow but still only 1:45hr to top of Am Bodach. The full ridge has a lot of snow but again nothing unmanageable. Watch out for the Cornices though, there are some bigs ones from the recent weather. Awesome route but I'd say grade II at the most.

The forecasted sunshine and blue skies didn't happen, but winter conditions were kind enough at 0 to -2C. Some great snow and ice sections, some areas of down climbing were a bit thin on ice and made us concentrate a little harder. Used one axe with proper leash which came into its own. Fun..thrilling...scarey....and tiring. Wonder what it's like in summer?

I've waited for years to find this in proper winter condition, and it was definitely worth the wait. No ice, a little frozen turf, and loads of powder made for slow going. Temperatures ranged from -6 to -8 but luckily we missed the strong winds that hit other nearby summits that day. Soloed most of it but got the ropes out for the pinnacle section. Just managed to finish the hard bits before the sun set, the torches didn't come out until the final Munro. Descended from near the col before the Pap. A long day, almost 12 hours to the Youth Hostel where we'd left our 2nd car.

A good lesson in winter mountaineering. Took us 12 hours, mainly due to there being two complete novices in the party, and only having one rope between 5 of us. Route was generally in good condition, though snow a bit powdery and loose in places. The two inexperienced members of the party needed roping up on several sections, which slowed progress considerably - got very, very cold waiting around (numb hands). Otherwise, we only needed to pitch the pinnacles, and a nasty verglassed slab shortly afterwards. Did the whole of the descent in the dark, in a blizzard - horrendous! I thought I was going to die.... I'll do it again someday - but will wait for a perfect winter day, and do as an experienced party of 2 or 3.

Climbed in perfect conditions of deep snow, distant views and good friends. A bitter wind accompanied us along the way. Didn't bother with a rope the traverse taking a little over 4 hours. See Originally climbed in 1968 with Paul Chapman & again with Harold Jepson in 1995. Repeated on 20th Feb'10 with Bob Kelly & Kath Bagshaw in deep powder snow but glorious weather.
