No. 4 Gully, Ben Nevis

Yesterday, between myself and Dave, we took a Jagged Globe team of 6 clients up No. 4 Gully on the Ben.

A dryish day, there had been a little bit of damp snow overnight, but the forecasted blizzards didn't arrive until the evening. The old snow had frozen up making walking easy, with just a little fresh snow enabling steps to be kicked. Teams were out on Point Five, Green, Ledge Route and North Gully, though there was a bit of spindrift about making climbing difficult in places.

No views from the plateau today, but a nice slide down Red Burn.
