28-01-14, Ben Nevis - Winter Climbing
On Ben Nevis today, very nice weather. Loads of snow from CIC hut upwards. A few teams out on the Douglas Boulder, a team trying something on Carn Dearg Buttress, a team on NE Buttress - not sure they made it to the top, a couple of teams heading to Moonlight Gully Buttress. Garry, Kath and I climbed Direct Route on the Douglas Boulder. A fairly large avalanche has happened across the base of West side of Tower ridge and the debris has filled up the Gulch.
Pitch 3 of the snow field start.
Large avalanche crown wall from West Gully past Vanishing gully.
