Today was my last day with Alex, but it was unfortunately a short one. He had to be back down the road early for a meeting, so a quick hit was needed. We opted for the Messenger V,6. It's been a long time since I did this, and thinking back it was a dig fest then. However, it was even worse today. It took a while to clear the 2 foot deep slab that in encased the initial corner all the way to the roof. Things eased after the roof, with a mere foot deep al the way to the top. It felt like we were performing a vital public service to add to yesterday's cleaning work. It's easy to spot the line that have been climbed as you walk in. Anything that has not been climbed will offer true winter sport.
It was a great way to finish the 3 days, and it puts us in good shape for our week on the Ben when Andy will join us as well.
