2nd time up the Gach! Weather was perfect - warm and not a cloud in the sky. Did with Paul,Adam and Mark. Cracking day out - nobody struggled. Really enjoyed this one. This time we descended to the NW ending up on the road about 2K up from the Clachaig - definitely the best descent option.scholesy03/06/2016

A solo ascent from the B863. Good path in places, very steep and unrelenting. Calm and sunny on the summit.Play2End25/04/2015

Be aware it helps to be a climber. Two of us walked from devils staircase intending the whole ridge. Never bin so scared, steep drops, ran out of time, got trapped and had to call Mountain Rescue!!!Deedubr06/09/2014

Aonach Eagach ridge east to west. On own, swelteringly hot day, but great views from a stupendous walk.Crib Goch24/07/2014
We waited for a good weather forecase before attempting the Anoach Eagach. Some cloud cover when climbing up to Am Bodach but clear when we topped Meall Dearg. WE set off together with another, much larger party but left them behind after the chimney. Excellent scrambling and a good head for heights is needed!darradog29/05/2014
Anonach Eagach - with Rach. Weather was very good, windy and wet to begin but clearing as we reaches the top. Great ridge walk with some technical scrambling. Climbing down some of the rocks proving the most difficult bit. Great Day!scholesy29/09/2012
Anonach Eagach - amazing walk. First time I've done a ridge walk or proper scrambling and whilst it was doable there was a sustained stretch of scrambling which as a beginner required lots of concentration. That being said, thoroughly enjoyable and defo recommend to the adventurous walker.Rachel29/09/2012
