A great day out.

It started cloudy but dry this morning and the cloud was slowly lifting as Ben, Andy and myself walked into the Ben this morning. It was busy with large numbers of people in front and behind us and a lot of people heading round to Observatory gully. We headed into the Ciste and headed for an empty Central gully right hand so the guys could get there teeth stuck into something a little harder. We climbed a couple of bulges on our way there at about tech 5 ice and carried on up the gully which was actually very cruddy and the rock gear was a bit of a blessing. It was sociable too with two teams on Central left hand.

We topped out to a glorious day and made our way to the top of No.4 gully to have a quick look at ways to descend but decided instead to walk down the Red Burn to make the most of the weather. Too many routes today tell you what was climbed but of note was a team high on the Orion face. Today I was working for West Coast Mountain Guides.

A glorious day in the Outdoor Capital.
