/ Tower ridge ?
Looking to get onto tower ridge or curved ridge depending on conditions.
Looking for somebody who knows the route and are available to lead a friend and I some times week commencing 19th Feb.
We have all the gear and have suitable Scottish winter experience.
Begs the question "why not just go and do it yourselves?" if you have the experience, read up a bit on the route and give it a go. I did it a couple of years ago. A few bits required a bit of figuring out but its not that hard. Go on. Go on, go on, go on!
As Dave Said.... You've got the Gear & Experience I'd Personally Start on Curved Ridge see how you go and if you've had no Dramas and found it good fun... Go Do Tower ????
suggestion (no offence intended): if you want to find partners this way, put a bit more on your profile. I know it's kind of illogical, because someone could be ultra talented and ultra experienced and have nothing on the profile, and because someone could have loads on the profile and still be useless (or fibbing)... all the same, I wouldn't myself choose to climb with someone whose climbing ability I don't know anything about, and I would take their profile as a starting point for knowing about them.
By asking the above question, leads me to believe you don't have suitable Scottish winter experience!
Just get on with it, you have the skills and experience.
As others have said, you have the gear, experience and a partner, go and do it and by the way, it's really only Grade III ;-)
In my experience -probably most difficult aspect of climbing either Curved or Tower Ridge if you are unfamiliar with either mountain is safely finding the descent routes -especially in bad weather -sounds obvious but take time to study this aspect before you start the route rather when you are at the top !
Enjoy -both routes are great.
Yes. On the Buachaille, be particularly careful of Coire na Tulaich. It avalanches.
There's not been many ascents of the ridge logged this winter, is it not "very" in yet?
It'll most definitely be "in" - probably buried under lots of snow right now.
Have a look at Lochaber MRT's facebook page for an idea of current conditions. They are currently searching for a poor soul missing since last Sunday in Observatory Gully area.
