Gained ridge via Coire na Tulaich. Very deep soft snow - seemed like Matt was up to his chest in it at one point!! Bagging second Munroe for Jenny (she already had Stob Dearg). Dropped down northwards from point east of SCA into Larig Gartain. Good feeling of acheivement.

Area : Glencoe South (Loch Linnhe To Loch Etive)

The southern side of Glen Coe includes some very well-known mountains and can be split into two groups; the ones you can see from the A82 and the ones you can’t. Included in the former group is Buachaille Etive Mor, Buachaille Etive Beag, the Three Sisters and the Ballachulish Horseshoe, and in the latter, three Munros between Glen Creran and Glen Etive (Sgor na h-Ulaidh, Beinn Fhionnlaidh and Beinn Sgulaird). With huge amounts of climbing and walking in summer and winter, this area is also home to a large cairn built for Queen Victoria, or so the story goes. Includes all major peaks above 600m.
