Had a great solo day on The Ben on Saturday... went up Raeburns Easy Route, over the summit, across the CMD arete and followed the ridge down.
Weather was pretty typical... one minute gorgeous blue skies, the next white out.

I had Coire na Ciste to myself, though I did see someone earlier at the base of Number 5. Chatted to a guy who had just climbed "Good Friday" and said conditions were good and saw someone on Tower Ridge.

Fantastic day, just when I thought it was all over...

Cascade was not there, the white line was broken but Comb Gully Buttress looked good as did Number 2 Gully Buttress.

We climbed Good Friday Climb on Saturday and found the conditions to be very good with lots of snow and plenty of ice. A few photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/sctheobald/sets/72157629464349526/
