  • Another fantastic day on the west coast again. It was colder and brighter with a northerly wind which was biting on the tops. I headed up No.4 Gully on Ben Nevis today. The snow at 700m-1000m. was well frozen but above that it was still hard going, presumably as it's been sub zero for a long time at this altitude and no thaw/freeze. The cloud was coming and going in the morning with the odd snow flurry but by mid day there was loads of blue skies and great views. A few more folk on the hill today, groups on Ledge Route, Tower Ridge, The Comb and a couple of guys skiing in the corrie. It keeps feeling like mid winter with this amount of quality snow and cold weather, brilliant.
