Carried rope and small rack but didn't use them, would be grade I in the Lakes! Quite a nice route but rather short-lived for such a long approach (we came from Steall!). Continued via CMD arete, Ben Nevis, and the SW Carn Dearg.

Collapsed in a sweaty broken mess at the gondola after running the last km (Jenny completing this dash with one crampon) and only got a ride down because the catering staff were late out.

Led in a blizard, very cold strong winds kept us on our toes. really fun day out, walked up from North face carpark, contoured round end of Carn Beag Dearg into Allt Daim valley to get to route, and back down on the CIC hut path.

Very quiet glen no other climbers than the 5 BCC ones. Follow-up with the arete and then with Oskari the summit of Ben Nevis and the walk down gully number 4. Very enjoyable day even though the visibility was limited.

Poor unconsolidated thin snow pack, with pockets of windslab. However, clear skies and a nice early morning inversion made this an excellent day out. Kurt and Bill's first winter route.

A really great ridge on a stunning day. Not much consolidated snow. The views to Ben Nevis from the top of the ridge are outstanding.

A superb route, marred only by the lengthy uphill trudge to get to the start of the first tower. Better and easier than Sron na Lairig or (in my opinion) Ledge Route.
