I was back out with Luke yesterday for his second day out in Scottish winter and after seeing how good the conditions were on Tuesday we decided to step it up and head for the ice. Green gully was our first choice and thanks to Paddy and Ivan we had the route to ourselves, as always it gave us four great pitches of ice. It is very stepped out in places but well formed with the crux pitch holding more ice than I have seen for a few years. Ice is definitely the way to go on the Ben at the moment!
