Pictures from the CIC hut weeks winter climbing on Ben Nevis this winter.
May 07, 2015
Here are a selection of photo's from my CIC winter climbing hut weeks this year. A bit late I know, but the end of the season was very busy and then holidays beckoned for a few weeks. They were a challenging couple of weeks with huge amounts of snow to start and high avalanche risks on approaches.
Matt on minus 3 gully after a spooky approach
Paulo's team swimming / poling / breaststroking up to try and get to minus three.
One of Matts team on Minus Three
Eastern traverse on tower ridge
Protecting the traverse, any which way!
A wild spindrift day on Vade Mecum
Jonathan topping out in similar conditions
On the way to Zero gully / Slav climb combo. A great route.
Stuarts revenge for earlier in the week. (It always looks worse than it is!)
