Finally the rain stopped.

After almost a whole week of rain it started to disappear this morning. Today I was just heading up the Tourist path of the Ben. The path is free of snow now until you hit the plateau and even here it has thinned a lot. We did need crampons today as what snow and ice is left was rock hard. There were many teams turning back that didn't have crampons and the visibility was still pretty low.

I had a quick look over onto the last couple of pitches of Indicator wall and Good friday climb. They were still complete as far as I could see and I would think you would still get up Good friday climb.

Happy Birthday and well done to Chris today who has wanted to get up the Ben for a long time.
