Richard, Gill, Guy his two clients and I headed up the Ben track crushed into a Ford Mondeo. We had good weather and the Ben was looking very wintery considering the recent weather we had been having. We had chosen to go and do something out of the way of the crowds which was a good idea because I counted well over 100 people in and around the North Face of the Ben.
We climbed Jacknife (V,6) however it turned out we weren't alone in our choice. Another team had got there before us but they didn't hold us up.
The real meat in this route is the middle pitch which offers some really nice climbing which is well protected.
