Curved Ridge is an absolutely classic scramble (Grade 3***) up Buachaille Etive Mor (Stob Dearg). Buchaille Etive Mor is the most photographed Mountain in Scotland, and is the dominant peak of the east end of Glencoe. It is one of the best scrambling peaks in Scotland. The spring arrowhead of the North-East face is made up of converging ridges, of excellent rough rhyolite. Curved Ridge is very popular, and a terrific way to summit the Munro of Stob Dearg.
