Topic - Scottish Winter Climbing - Am I missing something?

bowls - on 02 May 2012
Okay, so I am something of an inexperienced person when it comes to the subject of this - my winter climbing experience restricted to a few trips north for a few years and on the easy grade I, II and occasionally III routes, but i suspect has the conditions over the last 2 weeks been present over November, December and January then the North Face of Ben Nevis for example would have been rammed? or at the minimum a great deal more excitement than there has been? I don't claim to state climbing conditions are ideal, but on the other hand you have the greatest mountain, with the greatest face in the country covered in snow and yet the only comments are "not in condition" "too powdery" - I am guessing the hard routes are not "in" but surely the easier gullies etc have to be worth a punt in the way that over the last couple of years the conditions may not have warranted it at this time of year?
