Went to try Comb Gully but spindrift persuaded "us" (K-Bo) to try The Cascade. Good lead from K-Bo. Ice was fat and placements nice. Bit of ice knocked off during the lead clocking me just under the helmet, long term damage to be monitored could lead to realisation winter climbing is stupid

Very intimidated as we waited to climb, once climbing felt cool. Cracking pitch.

40m of steep ice in good condition. Finished off doing last pitch of Raeburn's Not So Easy route, which was a brilliant ice pitch of grade 4. Recommend doing what we did; it was great! Led by Mark during his assessment (by Pete Rowlands).

Overall gradient isn't particularly steep but bulges make some parts significantly steeper than others. Ice quality varied with some fairly good plastic ice and some difficult water ice. Latter shattered underfoot at one point resulting in small fall :-( sharper crampons needed for this! The 1994 SMC guidebook gives the length of the climb as 50m. Belaying on ice screws it is possible to lead it on a 50m rope but I'd recommend a 60m rope. From the top of Cascade, follow Raeburn's Easy Route up (The Upper Cascade didn't look in climbable condition). After moving together on easy snow, the final part of this held some ice - bit tired and late in the day so set up belay and pitched the final part. Some folks in the car park reckoned that climbs on the Ben were a grade harder in these conditions - possibly the case - difficult to tell. Rescued two folks (sans map) from near top of Raeburn's Easy Route on the way down. Folk said they'd climbed Number Three Gully Buttress and that it was in fairly good condition.
