John, Duncan, Isobel, Roz, Sarah, Tim and I took the Corran Ferry across to Ardgour yesterday (Thursday) and climbed Pinnacle Ridge on Garbh Bheinn. This was part of a Falkirk Community Trust scrambling day.
The is a great route on good gneiss. It’s at the top end of scrambling with some of the moves on the first steep buttress feeling hard for the Moderate grade it gets in the climbing guidebook.
We had showers on the walk in and up most of the ridge. However, the cloud cleared near the summit and for the walk off down Sron a’Gharbh Choire Bhig giving excellent views out to Eigg and Rum and down to Mull.
