Tour de Ben Nevis.


Today was the last day of the Abacus Mountain Guides course and it as an opportunity for the guys to put their new skills into practise. Unfortunately Shelly had to drop out because of a bad knee. We had planned on Ledge route hoping to be done before the worst of the weather came in but on the walk in the wind seemed to have already picked up so we changed our plan and headed for Moonlight gully. The guys lead themselves up the first two pitches then we descended the broken ground to the side and traversed round to Douglas Boulder where we did more of the same up West Gully and then Abseiled down East gully. A week of mixed weather but a nice group of people and a fun course to run.
