Looking up Glen Coe from the Pink Rib of Beinn a' ChrulaisteOverlooking Rannoch Moor at the entrance to Glen Coe, Beinn a' Chrulaiste offers more scenic bang for your buck than its comparatively tame appearance suggests, including arguably the most impressive angle on Buachaille Etive Mor. But there's more to this hill than its views. Seek out the Pink Rib - it's easier climbed than found - for a delightful scramble on the sunny south side of the hill. This brilliant little grade 1 route would be ideal for beginners, its only downside being that there isn't more of it. The south side of Beinn a' Chrulaiste is steep and rock-scattered, but from close quarters the possible lines are hard to spot. So much so, in fact, that I only climbed the correct route on my third ascent. By my second attempt I'd remembered to bring a guidebook, but even so... With a nagging sense of doubt I returned to the glen, and suddenly there it was, the Pink Rib. Obvious, when you know where to look.
