Today I was on the Ben with Matt. We were on a bit of a mission to get a couple of routes in. First up was Hadrian's direct which was in good condition, some poor ice on the first pitch but short lived. A quick bite to eat on the top then down to Zero Gully. This had a lot of poor ice on the first pitch with the belay hard to find. The rest of the climb was in good condition, but is a long way to the top. There were parties on lots of routes all over the mountain, take your pick.
