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.
A glorious day in the Outdoor Capital.
