I headed up North Gully on the Ben nice and early today to avoid the crowds which were expected after a nice forecast. I was very glad I did! There was already a team ahead of me who kindly let me skip the queue. The first pitch was nice but fairly thin with a couple of mixed moves about half way. The second was better though there was a small amount of soft slab. This didn't really pose a problem though as the quantities were small. A quick stop at the top then a decent down No. 4 which was in good condition.
