07.02.2013 - Curved Ridge, Buachaille Etive Mor

After having a wee look yesterday and seeing conditions were favorable, today Andy and I headed up Curved Ridge II/III,3 on Buachaille Etive Mor.  The ridge itself we found to be quite icy with the odd good bit of neve where needed, gloved up hands mostly preferable to axes on some sections.  I found the ridge to be very enjoyable and reasonably straight forward with interest and good views in abundance.  From the top of Curved Ridge we headed up the side of Crowberry Tower approaching Crowberry Gap from the South. Once out of the gap, more easy ground quickly lead to the summit on good snow and neve.  After a careful descent down Coire na Tulaich we were soon back at the car park, one more fantastic day in the bag!
