Comb Gully Monday





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.

Nice report and pics, Al. :-)

Think Good Friday must have had at least four ascents (and quite probably more), because we saw someone disappearing up it as we approached, were followed by Jamie Bankhead and partner, and passed by two soloists. Think we must have been the last two parties on it (topped out approx. 4pm), but there could easily have been more before we got there.

There were also at least three parties on Point Five, with another pair turning back because of the queue!
