Trail magazine and the British Mountaineering Council present Britain's Mountain Challenges.
Its name alone is enough to invoke shivers down the spine of many a hill walker, and in this video we take on the infamous Aonach Eagach ridge traverse, the longest and narrowest on mainland Britain, to see if the reality lives up to the legend. Soaring high above Glen Coe, the ridge's position in the heart of some terrific highland scenery guarantees phenomenal views all around, assuming the weather's playing ball. But its height, combined with sections of tightrope-narrow rock and sheer, vertical drop-offs is also what gives the Aonach Eagach its fearsome reputation.
If grade two scrambling on excellent rock high above the ground gets you excited, you'll love this video. Cinematic framing combined with first-person perspective and some simply stunning aerial footage, all threaded together with just enough commentary to keep you intrigued without giving too much away make this essential viewing for anyone considering tackling the ridge, wanting to reminisce over a previous traverse, or with no intention of setting foot up there but intrigued to know what all the fuss is about.
