Mountaineering in the ming

James on the slab

And another direct belay
Topping out
Mountaineering ropework skills today for Kenny and James. We went to Ben Nevis where it was mild with a little very light drizzle. We climbed Ledge Route (snow is broken on the slab but there is more than I expected) and descended No.4 Guuly looking at a variety of strategies for looking after each other on the route.
There was plenty of evidence of big wet snow avalanches in both No.4 and No.5 from the last day or so. Mild and springlike again :-(
