Today Neil and I helped a team of 5 mountaineers from Aberdeen climb Tower Ridge. They moved well as a group of 2 and 3 and we were up and down betwen 9 and 4.30. We had a glimpse of blue sky as we geared up and then it cleared as we it the top of the Great Tower for a spot of lunch to emphasise the exposure on Tower Gap. There are less people around on the Ben now the holidays are over but that still meant 30 or so on the summit. The helicopter was hard at work shifting loads of stone for th pathwork all day. In the past couple of days parties have been out reporting mostly dry rock on Raeburns Arete and Minus One Direct.
