Ben Nevis 28-03-12

Today I was out again with Chris on day 3 of his 5 day Alpine training Course.

Today gave another warm and clear day on the Ben so we decided to do another of the classic ridge/buttress routes and headed for NE Buttress.  We looked over various ways of moving efficiently over this type of ground and at retreat anchors etc.  Again the summit was warm and clear.  Not many out climbing now though, No.2 Gully was climbed and was said to be good.  NE Buttress was also great but is now passable without crampons or axe all the way.
