That’s the end of the Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Week and what a great week it has been with Oli and Shae. We stayed closer to Fort William today where the lower laying routes on Ben Nevis have slowly become more accessible as the week has drawn on. We walked in the the CIC hut with the crowds and an open mind as a good fortune would have it found ourselves at the foot of the classic Ben Nevis ice climb of Vanishing Gully with a near clear road ahead of us. Three pitches of great climbing and a couple of abseils later and we were strolling home particularly satisfied with the week that we’d had. Thanks both!
