A damp day on Ben Nevis

Today was a wet day for the Ice Factor Team. Jamie B was on No. 2 Gully Buttress, Karl did the first pitch of Comb Gully Buttress, Ian did North Gully and Alan did South Gully. The forecast was right on the money regards rain and temperatures but the winds didn't quite get as high as expected. The coire was running with water but there is still a good deal of climbable ice around. A cooler forecast tomorrow will probably mean a busy day on Ben Nevis as things freeze above 900m. The gondola seemed to run all day today and it looked like there were plenty of climbers up Aonach Mor.
