Myself (Tom), Freddie, Alex and Sheena climbed Curve Ridge on Buachaille Etive Mor, Rannoch Wall. Alex broke trail with Sheena following behing. Freddie and me then followed sharing leads and attempting to look gnarly and winter beast-like. The weather was fantastic, but the snow did resemble sugar for most of the way, providing for most knee deep plunges, although for the vertically challenged of us waist deep plunges at time. Freddie lead the crux pitch (dam him) in fine style providing some fantastic winter climbing bum shots.The final push to the top was lead alpine style first by Alex and then myself. Un-cooked pizza and chocolate was wolfed down at the summit and then a fast snow-bum-sledging and a session of hitch-hiking down the Glencoe Road lead us to the Kings House for chips and beer. The day was fantastic with everyone safe and warm in a candle lit Kings House.
