Ken: Caspar and I made the most of a settled and wintry day by heading high on Ben Nevis to climb on No. 3 Gully Buttress. We settled on Hobgoblin and finished up Hanging Garden giving a brilliant and sustained climb. One abseil from the top saw us back in No. 3 Gully. Loving my new 4001 boots!
Conditions were nothing short of excellent for this time of year, with plenty of snow and cracks largely free of verglass. The snow is starting to build quite nicely, long may this continue!
A few others were also making the most of today, with ascents of Soiux Wall, Apache, Gargoyle Wall and Slab Climb.
