Winter just keeps on giving! Some climbers, understandably, are keen to make up for lost time, and Stuart is one such climber. Dave was out with him and theymade an ascent of Green Gully (on Ben Nevis) and with time to spare, descended No. 4 Gully, before making a swift ascent of North Gully.
The cold nighttime temperatures have kept a few routes, high on Ben Nevis, in good condition and it looks like this will continue until the end of the month. We could see ice climbing well into May this year!
A few other teams also climbed Green Gully and Glover’s Chimney and a few routes on Raeburn’s Wall and Good Eve’s Buttress are still holding on.
