garbh choire

Big adventures deserve big blogs and they don't come much bigger than this.

Yesterday Bill & Di made the wee journey into the very remote garbh choire on beinn a'bhuird.

We had a fairly ambitious plan : mitre ridge, cumming-crofton & squareface.

Pitch 1 of mitre ridge was bloomin' horrendous but we both thought that it can only get better so pushed on.  Well, it doesn't - and if I were to ever write a guide book this route would most definitely be getting stripped of any stars.

We both agreed that we weren't interested on cumming-croften (if it was along the same lines of mitre it can wait for a winter ascent) and decided to rock climb (something that had been glaringly lacking so far) squareface.

Most definitely worth the stars ...
