Kelly and Robin were out with me on the Ben today. This was Robin's Birthday present from Kelly but unfortunately it wasn't a particularly nice day. We headed up onto Ledge Route for some excitement and had it to ourselves. There were some showers and drizzle most of the time with wet snow falling near the summit. There was some breaks in the cloud, especially late afternoon on the descent. The Pony Track was relatively quiet. Quite a chilly SW breeze today and definitely a wintry feel.
