Led with Charlotte by guide Matt Stygall, great day

Lean! Only patches of usable ice on the second pitch made for a bold and thin climb. Better ice on the final pitch.

Led P2. Abbed from just below the top because the cornice was enormous.

Had to retreat along with another pair ahead of us due to massive overhanging cornice. Abbed off V thread and in-situ tat, then second ab from pitch 2 belay. Exciting!

Soloed the first pitch but decided it was too spicy a solo. Did 5 other easier gullies instead.

Moonstone Hippy 29/Jan/11 AltLd O/S

Did it in 4 pitches, Phil getting P1 & P3, me getting P2 & P4. Rock well iced up and rimed, didn't have any small gear so used screws alot. The final pitch and over the cornice was spicy as the snow was a lot less substantial.

Enjoyable solo although the final snow slope to bypass the cornice was a little hairy without a rope.

Great climb, spindrift coming down the route. Lovely line on perfect snow ice and neve.

Good conditions, but not fat. Soloed easy first pitch, led steep second pitch on good ice, seconded top pitch. A cracking climb.

First winter route on the Ben: all quite exciting & un-nerving. I do remember a kindly dude on a neighbouring route showing me how to kick a better ledge for my feet: muchos gracias.
