Ben Nevis 24-02-12

After a drop in temperature last night and some fresh snow on the tops things were feeling much more like winter today.  The old snow was well frozen and there was only a little fresh accumulation which didn’t give any problems.

 Loads of people heading up high on the Ben and a lot of the high ice routes were still looking surprisingly good, we were up in the Ciste and routes like the Central Routes, The Gift, North Gully, Wendigo, Green Gully, No.3 Gully Buttress to name a few were all climbed.  Some mixed possible also, folks on Gargoyle Wall….

We did Central Left which was in really good condition and a great way to finish the course with Jim.

Cheers Jim and Mick for a great course!
