Emel Ridge, Beinn an Dothaidh - 12th February 2011

Due to poor snow conditions with a consideable avalanche hazard in most areas we headed for Beinn an Dothaidh to climb the Emel Ridge. This picture shows Stuart approaching the Emel Ridge.

The crags ahead provided the crux of the route. We had to pitch a section of steep rock and turf.
