Original Route 8 Jan 2008

Jamie B did Original route (IV, 5) yesterday in heavy snow conditions but found some frozen turf after digging the route out. He said that the boulders were still visible on the apron but the gullies were filling in with fresh windblown snow.

Matt, Adam and A N Other started up Route II on the Ben but were forced to finish up Route I - a good effort in the weather. The climbing was escribed as 'very physical'.

The snowline is at about 500m above Kinlochleven just now and we had severe storms all last night - watch the wind direction and keep out of those gullies folks!
