Rob.bonnet 1 Mar, 2017 Lead O/S We were really lucky to find it on fantastic conditions thanks to a truly nice advice from a local guide! Our first expérience with scottish ice could not be better. Thick ice (16cm screws OK on several places) and very pleasant to climb. The pitch is nice and sustained. We belayed and abseiled on R flanck of rocks to continue on comb gully buttress.

eldre070 18 Mar, 2009 2nd O/S 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).

RobScotland 16 Feb, 2008 Lead 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.
