Hadrians, Ben Nevis
Up in Scotland now for work and play. I see i haven't blogged for a while - too many other things getting in the way. I have been out though with a trip to NW Scotland over New Year and kayaking in Wales when the rain fell (unfortunately washing away all the snow too).
Anyway today I headed up onto the Ben with Chris to revel in the frozen snow. We decided to climb a well formed Hadrians which offered good ice. We also added some variation pitches higher up to avoid the steep snow slopes - they seemed like hard work!
Blue skies, no wind, freezing below the CIC hut made for a relaxed and pleasurable day.
