/ Short easy glencoe routes
Looking for a low grade/scramble option in the glencoe area to fit in before catching a flight from Glasgow. Maybe a 4 hour round trip as need to be off the hill by 1pm latest. any suggestions please?
A couple of low-level options spring to mind...
1) Zig-Zags on Gearr Aonach, then follow the ridge along to then pick up the path out from Coire nan Lochan.
2) Pink Rib on Beinn a'Chrulaiste
Curved ridge on the Buachaille Etive Mor. We did the scramble and ridge behind in a short day but just doing the scramble and back down should be half a day depending on how well you move.
Any idea how long it takes ?
Lagangarbh Buttress on Buachaille Etive Mor. I did it one evening when staying in the hut, can't remember exactly how long it took but it was definitely less than 3 hours round trip.
Should be doable in about 3 hours, if you are confident scramblers and don't need to rope up. Maybe even quicker if you descend from the end of the scrambling and don't go to the summit.
Thanks, pink rib fitted in just nicely : )
