No2 Gully

Yesterday Clare and Adrian led me up No.2 Gully on the Ben which gave us an opportunity to look at snow anchors and ice screws in addition to rock anchors which they're well familiar with from their rock climbing. There were lots of people out again including the leader who fell off of the top of the Cascade testing his ice screw and the mountaineers who were wandering up the base of the gully without hlemets on dodging ice from above (braver or dafter than me!). The stable weather is still hanging in there but what will come next? Rain or Snow??
