Am Bodach Ice

The ice routes climbed two seasons ago by Andy Turner and Ruth Taylor on the north side of Am Bodach in the Mamores. (Click on photo for larger image). 1. The Hemulen (V,5), 2. Little My (IV,4), 3. Snufkin (IV,4). (Archive Photo Ruth Taylor)

To cheer us all up during this lengthy spell of wild and windy weather, I thought I’d post a topo that Ruth Taylor sent me the other day. She visited the crag with Andy Turner on 24th January 2010 and climbed three new two-pitch lines. The approach was from Mamore Lodge.

“We’ve been meaning to send over this little topo for ages,” Ruth told me. “No idea whether these routes have been done before but we couldn’t find them in the guides. There’s loads more to do there, but we only had a day there and never made it back in!”

As far as I am aware nobody has ice climbed here before. No prizes for spotting the new route potential!
