Strident Edge

So yesterday I got back from two weeks of climbing in the sun in Spain and today I was winter climbing on Ben Nevis.  The body took a while to get used to the transition but we were both quite warm once we started climbing.  Donald and I opted for Strident Edge (VII,7) and it was brilliant.  We ended up doing the route in 4 pitches giving us both 2 fantastic pitches each and some brilliant climbing (some quite bold climbing too).  Great to see the crags in this condition i.e. amazing and it was great to see many teams out.  Kenny and Guy (not me, another Guy) climbed Smooth Operator (VI,7) and reported an ace route, Simon and Neil climbed The Slab Climb (VI,7), a team on Gargoyle Wall, Lost The Place and 4 people on Tower Ridge.  Conditions are great for hard mixed at the moment.  Working tomorrow on some 'easier mixed'....
