The classic of the Glencoe ridges which dominates the skyline on the north side of the glen.
The ridge starts with an ascent of Am Bodach, with a few small rocky sections to help you get used to the rock and moving efficiently on steeper ground.
At the summit we continue west, descend ‘The Chancellor’, the first technical section to the Munro of Meal Dearg. From there it is the start of the infamous pinnacles in the middle section. Every type of scrambling is undertaken: climbing up chimneys, down chimneys, over steep steps, down rocky ridges, up rocky ridges, exposed step arounds.
It’s all exciting but very achievable, just remember to look at the view. To finish we then walk up the easy slope on Sgorr nam Fiannaidh, before descending back to the road.
