Orion Direct

Day two of Rich's grade V campaign and we wanted to finish with a bang.  With yesterdays brilliant day with two classic grade V's we thought we would opt for on of the longest grade V's on the Ben.  By no means the hardest but felt very long after yesterdays mega day.  We opted for Orion Direct (V,5) which we had all to ourselves.  A rarity in such good conditions.  Conditions were great on the route, I felt the crux was getting thin which made the route more sporting and enjoyable!  A brilliant day.  The summit was busy with walkers but the north face cliffs were quiet...where is everyone...conditions are great!
