North buttress and Curved Ridge, Glen Coe

Today i was on North buttress of Buachaille Etive Mor, a direct line straight up the mountain finishing right on the summit. We did the climb in 3 long pitches looking at good belays and efficient  ways to have less knots when equalising the anchors. From the top of the pitched section the guys moved together to the summit. There was still time in the day and the guys were keen so we descended Curved ridge, another classic of the mountain. We moved together as a 3 on the rope and the guys did well placing runners and using as much natural protection as possible to get us safely down.
