Topic - NEWS: No.4 Gully Marker 'Removed'

Pids - on 11 Nov 2011
Number 4 Gully marker posts new home, 4 kbUKC Staff Edit: Now on the UKC/H News Page

Reports have been posted on the UKC/UKH Winter Climbing forum regarding the recent removal of the marker post at the top of No.4 Gully on Ben Nevis, in what looks like an act of vandalism.



Original Post:

Have just read on a blog page that the ab post at the top of Nr 4 Gulley on the Ben has been removed - it was certainly there last Sunday as we abbed from it !

Apparently it was removed as it was a man made intrusion on the hill !

We walked up from the man made North Face Car park, on the newly extended man made path to the man made CIC hut,then branched off on the man made path up to the bottom of Nr 5 Gulley, then followed the man made path up Ledge Route to the top - then we followed the rim round (past a few cairns)to the cairn and post at the top of Nr 4 Gulley.
Due to it being wet & slimy we judged it quicker (and safer) to ab down the initial rock section before continuing down the man made path back to the CIC hut an then joining the newley extended path back to the car park - wilderness experience ???????

Has the post been removed since last Sunday ?
What is the "justification" for this , and notification of it's removal ?

Wilderness experience on the Ben ? Aye right !

Have the ab posts into Coire Leis also been removed (they were there last weekend as well)
