Monday 31st December
Currently, I have not heard any reports from today. But, just a little note from yesterday.
Tony Stone climbed Babylon on Ben Nevis. He reported that the turf was frozen and the buttresses had a dusting of snow. The routes were beginning to thaw as Tony was leaving the crag. The route’s location provided good viewing of Messrs. Parnell, Robertson and Garthwaite smoothly making the second ascent of The Secret.
Blair Fyffe and Kenny Grant were also out and made the first winter ascent (by a variation) of the summer line Chinook at about VI, 6.
On Saturday, Tony climbed Andromeda in the Northern corries reporting that it felt hard for grade IV.
