Yesterday (Monday) I took Richard up the classic ice route Comb Gully on Ben Nevis. The route was complete if steep and a little narrow in 1 place and hollow in another. We had another great weather day, the hoar crystals are a centimeter long in my garden in Corpach where the freezing fog hasnt lifted for days. Just a little higher though and its sunshine all the way. I saw parties on Glovers, Raeburns easy (and the great ice bulges to its left), North, South, Central , Thompsons and Green. Good Friday saw at least 2 ascents and was reported as in very good nick. At least a few more days of this weater to go. Even with a slightly stronger breeze conditions were pleasant enough that I was lighly dressed and wore thin softshell gloves all day - a rarity in Scotland.
I've had a few short notice enquiries about guiding in the last couple of days but as I've just moved house I wont have a new internet connection for a couple of weeks and only get online every second day. If you need me please follow the phone numbers on my website (links at top of this page) or call me on 07887766716.
