Day 5

Today we headed into Glen Nevis for a spot of rock climbing to give Conrad's blistered feet a break. This gave us the opportunitiy to refresh some of his belay methods and tweak them a little. Despite the damp and occasional icy hold we managed 8 pitches of climbing, as well as some static sessions. Over all Conrad has had a mass of info to take away with him.

Campbell was out with friends on the Ben today and reported much the same as Matt yesterday. Good ice for climbing, but no good for screws. They climbed Wendigo and Central Right Hand. Guy climbed Point 5 in the same condition.

Matt and John went into Lochain, but found that the temperature was up and had striped the base of most of the routes. Crest route was white, so they bashed up that, but said things had thawed more when they had come back down.
