Headed up Tower Ridge with Jonny on Wednesday which was an awesome day. In preparation for a one day attempt on the Cuillin Ridge we tried to get a good pace going and descended Ledge route for some extra time on rock.

Finished the week with 3 days guiding on Ben Nevis working for various companies. Friday I took Gary and Anne from North Carolina up the Tourist Track on a scorching day for Abacus Mountaineering.

Saturday was a quick trip up and down the Ben with a 3 peaks group, who managed a respectable time of 5hrs 15min. We also managed to stay in the shade until the 2nd Zig Zag which certainly made things a bit more comfortable!
Yesterday I took Diane up the Ben to complete the 3 peaks. Ben Nevis was her last one to do and she seemed to save the best day til last as we had great views all day with only a bit of cloud blowing through now and again. Good effort Diane!
Four cracking days on the Ben in a week! Not a bad few days in the office!
