Point 5 Gully

After a long day on Tower Ridge yesterday and the fact I was working at 6 today meant I wasn't up for a big day. However I was tempted by the prospect of doing another classic route. So Craig and I headed up the Ben again. As Point 5 gully is one of the most famous climbs in the British Isles, not much more can be said about it.
What I can say is that the conditions were absolutely brilliant, the ice was like toffee and we were one of only two teams on the route that day.

After topping out we had to leg it back to the car so I could be back in time for work.
