02-03-13, Ben Nevis - Winter Climbing

A most excellent Italian Right Hand.
Freezing level high today, plenty of ice still on the Ben though. A fair few teams out, on Orion face, climbing Direct, Directissima, Astral?, Zero, Hadrian's, Point 5, Tower Ridge, Comb, Green, Boomers, Raeburns. We climbed Italian Right Hand, a very enjoyable grade IV pitch. The start was a bit cruddy, but the ice on pitch 2 was ace.

A crudy Italian pitch 1!
Excellent looking bit of ice.
