Day of work. Possibly one of the most under rated routes on the mountain. It's also far longer than described. Climbed the Direct Finish (as per SMC Ben Nevis Guidebook). Well worth doing!
Ken Applegate - Lead - 03/Apr/13 with Ryan

Can't believe this doesn't get any stars in the smc guide, fun climbing with direct finish.
Captain Solo - Solo - 13/Mar/13

Led pitches 1, 3 & 5. Decent conditions lower down, fat ice on the steeper sections and good neve. Up higher, snow was sugary crap and the ice was starting to thaw out. Felt low in the grade.

Initial pitches were up mixed ledges as no sign of ice. Gully pitches were nice as quite narrow, although snow conditions not great. Took left exit at the top to climb challenging ground past two chockstones. Guide book suggests easy sopes to finish. Not a chance. After 100m of walking the ground steeped, requiring a full 60m pitch to sit astride a dodgy belay, then 30m run out (okay, 2 semi good ice screws) on collapsing snow to try to out flank sagging cornice. Nice way to end the season.
