What a Guy

After much deliberation and a late start Guy and I finally decided to head up to the Ben. Guy had his eye on 'Gargoyle Wall' but on reaching the CIC hut we got some beta on a route called 'lost the place' (V,5***), a hidden gem that deserves its three stars. The last two pitches bring thhe excitement however the first two are very pleasent. The conditions were much nicer than on Tower Ridge because some of the turf and snow had frozen.

The second pitch, before the excitement begins.
Guy made short work on leading the whole route, although since he is just back from climbing the Eiger he should be making short work of most routes.
