Climbing The Curved Ridge on Buachaille Etive Mor, Glen Coe on very hot day at end of May 2009. Apologies for the camera-work.

  • Would like to see you and Murray of Scotland’s Mountains do a climb together when the rules are relaxed .

  • I climbed it too about 17 years ago and about 15kg lighter. It's an epic scramble.

  • Came across this video randomly. I am so pleased that I finally know how to pronounce the name of this mountain. Been to Glencoe a fair few times. It's absolute heaven!

  • Everything looks much steeper in your video than I can remember.

  • Watching an old VHS of this game "Rangers also won a Champions League game 7-2, Ally McCoist running riot against Alania Vladikavkaz of Russia in 1996/97, but that was in qualifying so doesn't count." Were you the commentator?

  • Beautiful mountain. I must get myself to Scotland one day to do some mountaineering amongst other things.

  • I certainly think that the Aonach Eagach Ridge is more formidable. Curved Ridge is simply climbing upwards and dealing with a bit of exposure. But the key thing is that there isn't any down-climbing which there is plenty of on the AE Ridge. And that is always more daunting.

  • @tarbowtin Done both now and I can assure you that AE Ridge is much harder as its UP aand DOWN whereas this is just UP which is the easier of the 2! Check my vids of each in utube.

  • buckle looked fierce the other day....must climb this tower ridge route - in summer - think i'll leave that route to the scottish hillary types.

  • @tarbowtin Technically I would rate Curved Ridge around 1/2 a grade harder than Aonach Eagach. It has a completely different character -steeper parts are more like a rock face than a ridge- and has quite a serious feel about it. Good holds can always be found, nevertheless, nervous or novice scramblers may want reassurance of rope on steep pitches. Great route.

  • how does the Curved Ridge compare to the Aonach Eagach scrambling wise

  • Went on bag a Munro for meningitis , first i had been ,The idea was to bag a munro and raise some money for a good cause . I had never been hillwalking so did,nt have a clue when someone said they would take me on the curved ridge of Buachaille Etive Mor . This was an experienced mountain guide ( four seasons etc ) so thought i was in safe hands and would be a nice day out !!!!!!!!!!!!! .What a way to lose your virginity ! .After the event , i would not have missed it for the world .

  • Some nice shots around Glencoe but you have to keep the coffee away from the cameraman. No sign of "Jamie's" V.Diff corner on that route up Curved Ridge.
