Go Further!

go further has had one of its busiest summer seasons so far and here is a selection of some of our best shots from recent trips.

Ben Mor 09 Ridge
In May Zoe and friends (pictured below) took a break from their running holiday to tackle a tough traverse of Ben More Assynt and Conival in the Inchnadamph area. This route starts at Inchnadamph and reaches Conival via the beautiful and narrow Gleann Dubh. From Conival there is a rough ridge walk (pictured here) to Ben More. From there we took the exciting south ridge that includes some exposed scrambling before dropping down to the spectacular Dubh Loch Mor.

Ben Mor 09 Corrie

We rested by Dubh Loch Mor for a long spell before tackling the long walk back to Inchnadamph. This long traverse is one of the most challenging in the area but variety and complexity of the scenery makes the long day worthwhile. This picture shows the burn running from Dubh Loch Mor with the imposing South Ridge of Ben More Assynt behind.

Cul Mor 09 Brad
As we keep finding out, some of the best mountain days in the North West are to be found on the ‘Corbett’ tops – those mountains between 2,500 and 3,000 feet in height. Several are to be found on the fabulous Coigach Peninsula just north of Ullapool. In May, we had several long spells of bright and cool weather and one of those coincided with this visit to one of the most accessible of Coigach’s mountains – Cul Mor. This picture is taken from the summit ridge looking south west to one of the most visited mountains in the North West – Stac Pollaidh.

Cul Mor 09 Larry
This picture is also taken from the north west top of Cul Mor looking north towards Suilven – one of the most spectacular and remote of all Scotlands ‘Corbett’ tops.

An Teallach 09 Jill
Despite some brilliant weather in May and June, we did see some very late snow and one of those flurries coincided with a complete traverse of An Teallach by Jill and friends (pictured).

Here, two of our group can be seen nearing the end of the pinnacled ridge a short distance before one of the main Munro tops which was in cloud.

The day started brightly but became overcast as the party reached the main ridge where we took this stunning picture of the full ridge.
