19.4.14 the Pink Rib of Beinn a' Chrulaiste

This morning Ali and I headed off down the sun blessed Glencoe to the Jacksonville car park to tackle the Pink Rib of Beinn a' Chrulaiste, a 2 star, grade 1 scramble offering stunning views of Rannoch Moor and Buachaille Etive Mor. The approach, even as mentioned in the guide book (Noel Williams, Scrambles in Lochaber) was quite vague and open to variation, covering some boggy ground and crossing the West Highland Way footpath.  The route its self is very pleasant, with positive holds and interest in abundance.  Towards the top the route lessens in steepness (not that its ever really steep anywhere) and kinda peters out.  A short, but rightly popular mini classic that even met Ali's strict standards for an enjoyable quick hit!
