Ben Nevis Ice

Today the Bolton lot headed into the Ben. 2 groups were climbing and 1 was on skills.  I took Adam and Ethan on a tour of some nice ice.   Firstly, we did the Curtain IV, 5***.  This super classic didn't disappoint as it was covered in fresh snow.  We even had the full Scottish experience in the cave belay as we were battered by spindrift.  

After nipping down Ledge Route, we climbed the Curtain Rail IV, 4*.  This had some nice climbing on it as well.  We rounded off the day in the Gulch.  Here we climbed the steepest line available at IV, 4.  It was a good way to end, but a shame we ran out of time to do Waterfall Gully as well.
