Tower Ridge

Today Dan, Craig and I decided to do Tower Ridge. This is another route I have been desperate to do and again it lived up to all expectations. The ridge offers fine mountaineering with exposed and interesting situations.
The most interesting and infamous section is the Tower Gap, which can only be described as 'oh ya B*****D', when its first viewed from above. Pictures of the gap do not do it justice you really need to have your legs spread as far as possible across the Gap with nothing beneath you but air.

The Ben was busy as always in these conditions with lots of route being done all over the North Face.
