Back on Ben Nevis
Does it get much better for mixed?
A quick hit on Ben Nevis this morning with Andy. The main aim was to get down for 1300 for a coffee. So with these time restrictions we opted for a quick route on or near the Douglas Boulder.
On arrival, we decided to pick a line which wasn't in the guide book. Turns out it was called 'Watery Foul's' (V,7) which had an intense first pitch then cruisy for the following two pitches.
Andy of the first pitch
The mountain was looking stunning but reports of very slow/exhausting walking rendered the rest of the mountain unclimbed. Teams climbed Gutless/Rutless and Cutlas on the Boulder.
Winter is getting off to a good start...Now a wee thaw to keep us on our toes.
Spot all the lines
