Thursday 2nd April

For the past two days i have been at the CIC hut on Ben Nevis with the Falkirk High Tops Team.

On tuesday we climbed Castle Ridge.  There was snow on the ledges and one axe was required for safe movement.  Large amounts of ice fall were noted around The Shroud and No. 3 Gully Buttress areas.

On wednesday Andy and i climbed Ledge Route.  Linda and Davy climbed the South West Ridge of the Douglas Boulder (very loose) and descended East Gully.  There was good snow ice on the crux slab with snow on the rest of the route.  Cornices had colapsed on Castle Gully and Number 5 during the night.  Ice fall was noted during the day in and around the Comb Gully Buttress area.
