So I'm at the end of the first week of the Outward Bound classic course and today we were up Ledge route on the Ben in fantastic conditions. The group made speedy progress up to the CIC and the cloud started to clear as we loaded up on water and started making our way up to Coire na Ciste. From here we traversed right above Moonlight gully buttress across No.5 gully to the perched block. This is a nice way onto ledge route and avoids the wet slabs and the loose gully.
We had some lunch in the sun and continued up the route to the plateau. The group had made quick enough progress that we had time to join the mass' on the summit and then headed down the Tourist path to the top car park.
Off on a three day exped tomorrow and hopefully we'll traverse the Grey Corries and if we're going well, we'll go for the Aonachs too.
