We're up at the CIC Hut on Ben Nevis this week, and thought we should make the most of the cooler weather, by squeezing a route in this afternoon. Phil took Devon and Diggy up the East Ridge of the Douglas Boulder, whilst I climbed Fawlty Towers with Linnea and Andrew.
Fawlty Towers was fairly icy in places, but a bit soft in others. We descended Tower Ridge and abseiled back into the Douglas Gap.
The cliffs of Ben Nevis are plastered in snow and rime ice, but getting around is going to prove a bit tricky for the next couple of days due to the sheer volume of snow. There are also some huge cornices over a number of routes on northerly through to easterly aspects at the moment.
