Our two CIC Hut teams had another great day on Ben Nevis, with Niels and his team climbing Tower Ridge, which is currently in excellent condition, with icy variations possible.
I climbed Observatory Buttress with Pete and Ivo. The initial pitch was quite thin in places, but perfectly climbable, and the ice a bit brittle until after the crux steeping. There after, the ice was excellent. We were greeted with clear views from the summit, which were, as always, most welcome. Plenty of teams enjoying Point 5, Orion Direct, Zero Gully and one team on Rubicon Wall.
