East Ridge Carn Dearg Meadhonach

Matt & Karolina did the East Ridge of Carn Dearg Meadhonach 4 years ago as seconds and wanted to head back this year to lead it for themselves. The route gives a great mountaineering expedition at grade II and the summit views of the Ben are lovely. They moved well and I was able to give input into efficiency on winter routes and get them thinking about the advanced skills of moving together safely on ridges. It was a tad warmer today and we had some snow showers throughout the afternoon but this was falling as rain back at the car - good news for the grass fires that are springing up across the Highlands due to the 3 weeks of dry weather.
