Green Gully, Ben Nevis – 28th March

Archie, Ian and I took the first ferry from Armadale at ten to nine, our plan was to start late to let the crowds finish the route before we get started. The day was not inspiring with low cloud, but at least there was no wind. It seemed very unlikely that there would be any climbing at all as it was so mild, but eventually we found the first ice pitch which was still climbable despite the thaw. We had 3 really nice shortish sections of ice and we took the normal finish due to the lateness of the hour, I had climbed it before and it is a very nice route, a classic at the grade, IV,3. The red burn bum slide was excellent with a ‘bob run’ section, leading almost to the place where the tourist path crosses over. All pictures are credited to Archie and Ian.
