Winter climbing not yet finished on Ben Nevis

Apr 22, 2016

Good winter climbing to be had this weekend on Ben nevis. Climbed Tower ridge on Wednesdaday and there is plenty of ice still high up on Ben nevis. Teams were on Orion (moving very slowly), Point 5 and Tower ridge. These conditions will stay and improve into the weekend with the cold weather.

Routes that will be fine this weeeknd with this cold snap are: Green gully / Cascades / Orion / Hadrians / Sickle / Point 5 / Rubicon wall looked do-able / Observatory buttress / Good friday climb / Indicator wall / Psychadelic thin but ok / Smiths / Tower Scoop. Sadly I am working a summer type thing this weekend otherwise it would be good to go and swing the tools again.
