Ledge route on Day 2.

After yesterdays day of skills we decided to go and actually get a route in so headed for Ledge route. I lead the way for most of the route talking the guys through anchor selection and looking at quick ways to switch between appropriate techniques. We finished the last bit of the ridge with the guys going solo and then we descended down No.4 Gully.
Teams out on Combe, Green and a very amenable two-step corner. One team made an ascent of Vanishing gully which I would say is there but probably not at the guide book grade yet. The mixed routes in the Ciste looked in great condition and will probably last as there is no real thaw forecast until later in the week. Today I was working for West Coast Mountain Guides.

Looking up to No.3 Gully.
