      Well, I fancy Ledge Route on the Ben and perhaps, an afternoon at Poldhu, but I've never been to Etive so could be tempted...
      What about the ridge on Garbh Beinn Ardgour? I seem to remember hearing some stories about this but don't remember the outcome

        Well I have never been to Etive either. I have heard that the slabs are easy and low in the grade........

            I heard that Paul Radcliffe descended one route on the slabs quite quickly

          The ridge is good especially with the direct start
