Climbing on th Ben

Yesterday Lorenzo and Jamie B climbed White Line (III) on the Ben. This is a good expedition up the broken ground to the right of Glover’s Chimney which has a real big route feel despite the modest grade. This was accentuated by slightly worrying snow conditions on the approach and some small sluffs on part of the route as the day warmed up. They did consider backing off at one point but persevered and were rewarded by a sunny Lochaber panorama and perfect bum-slide conditions on the Red Burn descent. As Lorenzo would say; Happy Days!
