Lean with icy steps. Good neve on the ramp and a nice ice pitch to finish on the left.

Mainly plod up snow slopes, but one icy section. Got a bit lost on the top-lesson take a bearing before the mist comes down!

Dean's first route on the ben great day out, opted for the not so east finish.

Good conditions. Upper snow slope a bit wind slabby so opted for a direct finish to the left of the pinnacle rock up a steep water ice section. Took the large cornice direct.

bms 27/Feb/13 Solo

Snow a bit crusty on top section. Weather stunning!

stratandrew 26/Feb/13 Solo

Not great snow to finish on - breaking through the neve crust and looking a little slabby on avalanche prone slopes....

Doogleman ?/Feb/13 Solo

Climbed as 2nd route after Garadh gully. Incredible conditions, everything bomber except last 15ft below top-out. Underestimated the length of the exit traverse (tiring!) but the views back across Ciste were astonishingly good. Great day out!

fall-line 12/Jan/13 AltLd O/S

Good conditions, bomber neve all the way. Bit surprised by the length and lack of belays so topped out in the dark.

Moved together. Some fairly rotten ice to start, then an easier snow plod (without much gear) up to the cornice. Popped my head over the top to be greeted with gale force winds! Continued to Ben Nevis Summit and practiced white-out nav on descent.

As we got higher we thought it'd get colder. It didn't. Backed off in heavy rain having failed to find any belays and with the ice melting in front of us. Looking at the pics here, the first pitch was comparatively anorexic.

Parked in north face lower car park. Easy ascent up to climb, ascending slowly due to second party. became benighted due to late start.

Was heading for Number 2 gully but got a bit lost in the clag. In retrospect its a good job we didnt stumble on anything too hard! Not a bad route overall, straightforward climbing, especially when you've got a Squilla handy to kick steps up any hard sections.

Was aiming for gully number two, but missed, just ended up finding the easiest path through the white out. some great sections and surprisingly not too out of condition either. fairly spicy top-out, fragile ice that fractured away and getting increasingly steep to a very wind blown pull over the top cornice. brilliant day out

Set out to climb various routes that weren't in condition following a substantial thaw. Headed up to No. 2 Gully Buttress, but that too was very thin, so soloed this, and finished up a grade III groove.

Climbed as 3 with Adele and Steven McFaulds. Adele and I alternated leads. Very nice sunny day and quite warm with good ice and neve. Worthwhile route but took us a long time due to climbing as 3.

Had a slushy epic getting to the base of the route in thick clag. Racked up late, roped up too early. Got disorientated and hadn't checked the guidebok properly. Believed other people's opinions when we were actually in the right place all along. Found the initial icefall but it was largely detached from the rock with water running underneath. Backed off in the name of sensibility and retraced our slushy steps to the CIC hut. Approx 40m vis all day.
