Western Rib, Aonach Mor
Updated: Apr 5
Today i was on Western Rib, Aonach Mor. With a westerly wind and lots of fresh snow falling trying in get into the Ben Nevis gullies would have been a bad plan, but this 500m ridge is not a bad alternative. With the snow level around 700m there was a good amount of cover on the ridge but the turf was not frozen at all on the route, so we trod carefully. There is a lot of fresh windslab around, even on the ridge which needs to consolidate more for things to improve.
A full on winter day out with the stong winds and snow fall.
