Event Details

This is one of the best, if not the best, grade 2 scrambles in the British Isles.

Whatever measure you use to assess the quality of a scramble – length, exposure, views, or overall adrenal gland-squeezing awesomeness – the castellated crest of rock that looms menacingly above Glen Coe is pretty hard to top. Nowhere else on the British mainland will you find a ridge of such narrow yet epic proportions; and when you add in the ease of access and the scenically stellar location, it comes as no surprise that this is one of the most bucket-listed mountain days in the country.

For a large swathe of the hill walking world, Aonach Eagach has all the dazzling unavailability of an A-list celebrity. You might pin her picture on your wall and dream hazily about meeting her one day, but the prospect of getting up close and personal is woefully remote. Unlike other celebrity scrambles – Crib Goch, for example, and Striding Edge – this sky rail scramble requires more than just some basic experience in the hills and a good head for heights.

So we recommend you tackle this beauty once you are confident in moving with ease on grade 1 scrambles. So come and do Striding Edge and Crib Goch first with us and get yourself prepared. For every moment on Anoch Eagach that is butt clenching and exposed you will have even more OMG moments as you gaze over the landscape, take in the vast sky or simply marvel at what you have achieved.
