It was another wet and cloudy day again today for our group of 5 guys on The Ben. Very gloomy and very low cloud this morning. Probably the quietest I've ever seen the pony track with only 3 folk seen all day. Light rain and above 1000m snowing most of the day. There is now quite a few cm's of snow lying on the plateau. Despite it being winter higher up, two of the folk on the hill were still determined to think it was summer with jeans, trainers and one rucksack between them, and of course the usual question when they saw us 'how far is it to the top'. Spider Man in presence today on the summit, just goes to show, even when it's quiet up there it's still a fun day out.
