Literally Vanishing

Jamie Bankhead and I headed up the Ben and will be doing the same tomorrow. We had made no objectives just to go and see what was in and give it a try. The first route we spotted that might go was Vanishing Gully (V,5***) but unfortunately it was actually vanishing.

After backing off we decided to go round and take a look at Compression Crack (V,5**) which we noticed looked fat on the walk in. It was nice thick blue ice that isn't the best for blunt tools but it did the job.
