Crazy Pinnacles and back, 18th April 2011.

With the snow on the decline (although not completely just yet?), myself and Mark headed to Glencoe to do the Aonach Eagach, or as much as we could get done as we had to be back in Edinburgh by 6pm! The plan was to get as far as the Crazy Pinnacles and then reverse the route. The picture shows Mark contemplating the way down on one of the first two downclimbs at the start of the route.

Not much snow on Ben Nevis, although some of the easier gullies out of view will probably stii be holding some snow.

Looking west down Glencoe.

The first of the crowds behind us staredt to catch up as we stopped for lunch just after the Crazy Pinnacles. 

Downclimbing the pinnacles, in reverse.

Andrew and Rosie, a couple we met on our return leg, climbing one of the chimneys on their way to the pinnacles. Apologies to them for the quality of the photo as it was into the sun!

Andrew and Rosie again in the distance with a fair chunk of the ridge still to do.
