Today I was back on Ben Nevis and felt like I haven't been up here for a while. In fact the last time I was up was back in December when we climbed THIS ROUTE. It was great to be back up and see the unbelievable amounts of snow. I was out working with Mike for Abacus Mountain Guide and we had a team of 4 for some nice climbing. With many routes out of bounds we went and took turns on the Curtain Rain (IV,4) and The Curtain (IV,5). Both great routes for the current conditions and the ice was pretty good. I hadn't climbed either of these routes so it was an extra bonus as I have walked past them many times.
