Avalanche Rescue In Scotland
Buchaile Etive Mor is a mountain popular with climbers. It is known for its distinctive shape, which looks like a pyramid, and features on many postcards of the area. The information website Visit Fort William says its Curved Ridge is ideal for scrambling, an activity between hill walking and climbing in difficulty, and which requires hands to be used to get up rocky faces and ridges.
The website said it could be difficult to locate in mist but "gives delightful, easy climbing".
In winter this mountain is a classic - there are world famous ice-climbing routes like Crowberry Ridge that people travel the entire country (or from abroad) to climb in winter...
The mountain is no more dangerous than any other and all should be given appropriate respect.
The Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team work tirelessly in winter to both keep the mountains safe (by posting reports) and by assisting unfortunate climbers (usually daily). They nearly went bankrupt recently - please consider donating some money to the local MRT wherever you are visiting in the UK.
