Epic day, soloed the route. Nice neve in the morning. Sunshine all day, still enough snow along the ridge.

Webster 28/Mar Solo

still a prefect snow crest for around 60% of its length. some fresh snow overnight made the rocky steps still wintery though the very lowest point of the ridge is more wet summer than winter. should maintain winter status for several days yet under the current forecast

First on first off. Just coming to the end of the footpath when the sun poured into the gateway. Snowpack starting to receed but was hard and well trodden where you needed it. Got harnesses out but never really felt we wanted to rope up. Getting up early paid off as we felt like we had the whole of Scotland to ourselves. Bluebird and 360 clear views. A day to remember!

Wanderlust 18/Feb Lead O/S

Our first winter route and we had an absolute epic! Started at 0930 on WHW and ascended to Stob Mhic Mhartuin. Lovely weather, nice firm snow and epic views up to Sron Gharb, then a bit of a whiteout up to Am Bodach. The actual ridge was terrifying in parts and only the lack of retreat options kept us up there! Darkness fell after Meall Dearg and that's when things got a bit scary. Headtorches on, we managed to push through and get to Glencoe village by 2030 after a horrible descent of deep snow, then wet heather, grass and barbed wire fences. Totally frazzled, ate some soup, drank a beer and booked a room to leave the car rescue til the morning. Used a rope (fixed gear) for the initial difficulty but soloed the rest, partly shutting out the fear in order to get off/finish the route. What a day :)

ChrisH89 04/Mar/17 Solo O/S

West to east traverse. Wet, windy and generally miserable weather gave way to benign if a little cloudy conditions just as we reached the start of the ridge. Decent conditions with reasonably consolidated snow. Carried rope and small rack but the climbing was never hard or sustained enough to require it. Crux was probably the final ascent to Am Bodach which is often abseiled on a traverse in the opposite direction - involved a slightly sketchy traverse above a big drop.

Alpenglow 04/Mar/17 Solo O/S

Day started off with rain and strong winds but once up on the ridge it was surprisingly good weather, with little wind. Visibility was patchy. Went west to east and the ridge was technically interesting but never too hard as we didn't have to get the rope out.

Probably the best weather I've ever had in scotland. The route looked completely stripped from the road but actually there is quite a lot of snow up there. Pitched 2 or 3 sections and moved together for the rest. Descended towards the pap then down to the road. 8.25 hours total. Managed to hitch a lift back to car pretty much straight away which was the best feeling ever.

The heavy rain and warm temperatures Fri night/ Sat morning have almost stripped the route bare of snow. Axe and crampons were not used. Any snow left was unconsolidated but mainly isolated to higher level ground. Very wet rock but enjoyable day. Horrible walk up to Am Bodach but the weather gamble paid off at the summit when the cloud and rain cleared with spectacular views for the whole afternoon. Not correct to log this as a winter climb but did so in case others wanted info on conditions.

Fantastic ridge, snow was soft so axe wasn't useful for the 'climbing' was more winter scrambling conditions, brilliant none the less. Gave Boli a fright with a stupid unnecessary fall of one of the pinnacles, managed fine second time round. Pinnacles lasted longer than I was expecting - a bonus.

with Balaz
Cornish boy 29/Mar/16 Lead O/S

A very long day...and night! We underestimated the length and seriousness of the route. Lots of fresh snow and moving as a three on the rope made for slow progress. We pitched quite a few sections, especially after darkness fell. 35m rope was just long enough for the 2 abseils [off Am Bodach and just after the pinnacles]. Despite having a bit of an epic in really tricky conditions it was a memorable day out and, for us, a real mountaineering challenge and adventure. However, we need to be more efficient at moving quickly over exposed terrain.

Left car at around 8:30am, Reached Am Bodach summit at around 10am, Sgorr nam Finnaidh at about 2pm including lunch stop. Finally a rather tedious descent back to road and up to the Clachaig.

Headed to Glen Coe from Edinburgh Friday night/Saturday Morning. Weather was not promising. Started out at 7.30am and were heading back by 11.00am, after two of our party of four decided the weather was too bad and we should head back. A good decision, as on the way back it was white out conditions and we got lost near some very steep slopes and had to navigate our way down. We had roped up at the summit of Am Bodach, ready for the ridge, and had made it to the abseil at the start. The wind was really blowing, and so with loads of spindrift and only 100m visability we decided it wasn't to be. A rather rubbish day but was made better by lots of beer and being safe and warm in the Clachaig!

Roped up with Tom for most of the ridge whilst Ed soloed around in an excitable frenzy. Lots of powder everywhere and snow was quite heavy at times. Learnt about the versatility of a pair of Black Diamond ice axes, as they are also quite good at clawing on to turf and rocks underneath a few feet of snow. Approx 8hrs.

Stroppy 16/Jan/16 Solo

Definitely worth the drive up from Manchester (and the 3hrs of freezing cold sleep in a pop up tent on the side of the road). weather was not kind with low cloud and wind whipping the snow up - gave it all a very epic feeling though. Quite precarious in sections with a lot of unconsolidated powder.

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.

Almost perfect conditions... A good covering of snow that was consolidated for the most, blue skys and light winds made for a great day out. Not as hard as I cyked it up to be. If you climb II and don't mind exposure do it asap. Will be back for the solo sometime.

First winter route (and nearly the last). Classic case of 'got the gear no idea'. Benighted halfway along ridge and stupidly decided to descend directly off the ridge via a steep gully. Descent took all night (with 2 scary abseils), got back to car for 11am the following day!! Lessons were learn't!

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 http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=20700. 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.
