A very sociable day out.

Back out with Angus and Gary today for Abacus Mountain guides and we climbed a very snowy and Alpine feeling East ridge of the North buttress of Stob Ban, it was a stunning day and far better than forecast. The route required a bit of clearing again, the turf was well frozen but still quite a few loose blocks around.
We shared the route with Tom and Gam, who are friends of Angus and Gary's and were being guided by Ken so there was plenty of chat and laughs going round. A big thanks to Ken for looking after them.

Not a bad view, hey?
