A day on the Ben
« on: 22 March 2015, 22:02 »
Matt and I had a fantastic day on the Ben on Saturday we had an early start leaving at 4am intent on a full day. We were first into Coire na Ciste and made rapid progress on our first route, Green Gully followed by a descent down number 4. There were 2 parties ahead of us on Comb Gully but they didn't hold us up and we were soon on the plateau for a second time. A descent down number 3 brought us to the foot of Thomsons route and perhaps the best pitch of the day. We were back home just before 6, a long but very productive day three Classic 3 star IV's. All repeats for me but Matt had not climbed them before so a extra special day for him.

Slow Tony, very slow but at least it's progress.

You appear to have a fixation on food and drink. Have you considered therapy?
