At the end of March Tom, Josh, Steve, Paul and I stayed at the cosy CIC for four days of winter climbing.
Annoyingly conditions were great the week before and the week after! We had to contend with a freezing level above the summit and rain until the last day. But the Ben came good and showed us just how resilient it can be.
Routes climbed included- Number Two Gully, Comb gully buttress, North East Buttress (twice) and Good Friday climb.
The highlight for me was a full on mountaineering adventure up the North East Buttress starting after a leisurely lunch, summiting at 8pm then descending the CMD arete and Coire Leis by moonlight.
I’ll be aiming to book six beds for next year around the same time.
