The winter traverse of the Aonach Eagach, like the same outing in summer, is a mountain day of classic stature. Long and exposed, parties must be competent and efficient to avoid benightment.

βeta: How does a route have crux down climbs. Solo/lead the ups with abseiled down climbs given the thin snow pack and the rope being inches away in the bag. Good life choice and great ridge.

βeta: some of the down climbing can be a bit tricky if the rock is verglassed, don't hesitate to bring a rope out.

βeta: Solo apart from two abs , absolutely perfect weather, good snow cover but unconsolidated for the most part. Epic day out !
