North Buttress, Glencoe

Today i was out on Buachaille Etive Mor on North Buttress, a vdiff route in summer conditions, which today it was. This is one of my favourite routes, with grade 2 scrambling to get to the starts of the climb, 4 good pitches of climbing and then a few hundred meters of scrambling to finish at the summit of Stob Dearg.

The focus today was belays and gear placement, which the route is really good for. We focused upon the process of building safe and efficient belays with a repeatable process.

The climb was good throughout if a little slippery in place from the drizzle.
