New Route on the Forcan Ridge

On February 7 Duncan Robb and Michael Ramage had a good find in Glen Shiel, when they climbed a previously unrecorded 120m-long gully on the south side of the Forcan Ridge on The Saddle.

“It’s a great little route in a popular location’” Duncan told me. “We only climbed it by chance on the day as it looked in good nick from the bottom. It provided a straightforward route with an airy top out on the ridge to the east of the summit.”
