Great day out Thompson’s route on Ben Nevis today, dry, no wind and a view from the top with good axe placements all the way up. Other teams on corie na ciste buttress, Douglas boulder, no.3 gully buttress and a team backed off an ascent of no.4 gully.
Lots of good ice where it is high up but for the time of year there is not much snow build up and a lot of routes are pretty bare. #scotwinter
