Aonach Eagach ridge in perfect conditions. 4 hours from car park to car park.Geoff Briggs01/06/2023
Aonach Eagach from E to W, finishing just east of Glencoe village. Perhaps not as scary as it's made out but the pinnacles seemed endless and made for a long strenuous day.TRG31831/05/2023

The superb Aonach Eagach traverse from East to West in sunny weather with Richard W and Richard M. This part of the ridge has superb sustained scrambling on solid grippy rock with plenty of holds; exposed but wide enough for feet and hands, keeping to the ridge. No more than YDS2.Denise 14/09/2021

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

Aonach Eagach ridge east to west. On own, swelteringly hot day, but great views from a stupendous walk.Crib Goch24/07/2014
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
