Would like to hear from anyone who, having completed Aonach Eagach, has used this route in descent?
Is the path as dangerous as it's cracked up to be, esp. in good conditions?
How does it compare in steepness to, say, the upper section of the Watkin Path on Snowdon?
Thanks in advance for your time
Thanks for your replies.
Googled an image and it looks pretty steep, in this picture, at least.
I still get in a cold sweat thinking about descending the Clachaig Gully path.I was on my own (my friends had gone on ahead and I was meeting them at the Clachaig Inn).It was a hot, sunny day in June.I was absolutely knackered and fell loads of times on the scree.At the time i had no idea of the potential danger of this route.Not sure how close I was to disaster (wasn't aware of any obvious danger), but after learning of its reputation will never do a walk again without doing the required research first.
