Day 2 for Gordon and Guy was out to practise again. We fancied a slightly technically harder, but shorter, day so we went to Castle Ridge on Ben Nevis. Although initially the rock was greasy and the day started out with us hidden in damp mist things improved. As the day went on there was a layer of mist below us and thin high cloud and the odd patch of blue sky above. We took all of the difficulties as directly as possible to give a good Grade III scramble that often feels more difficult than the hard bits on Tower Ridge. Another good day and with Tower Ridge Gordon has now done 2 of The Ben's 4 classic ridges- only NE Buttress and Observatory Ridge to go!
