Comb Gully Buttress

Johann and I headed up the Ben today with uncertain conditions and a holiday day we didn't have much in particular in mind. We just knew we were heading high up and had forgotten how long that takes. After watching all the other parties head to the popular gullies, Green and Comb, we decided to head for Comb Gully Buttress (IV,5***) which no one and we got the route completely to ouselves.
The main dificulty is in the third pitch 'the ice bulge' which at present is very steep but short lived and offers a good bit of sport.
