I have been on the Ben today for Big Friday! Izzi and Micheal joined me as we walked up high to assess the damage by the weeks weather. The news is, there is a lot left to go out. We climbed a fantastic Comb Gully IV,4*** and Winter Cascade IV,5**, which was very thin at the start.
Starting up Comb Gully
Through the crux
There were teams on Cascade, Central Gullys, Number 3 Gully Buttress, Thompsons, Green Gully and many more. The buttresses had start to rime at the tops, but nothing steep was in.
