A wild wander on the Ben

I hadn't been up to look at the North Face of the Ben for almost a couple of weeks so despite the fresh snow at sea level today, Andy and I took the rack for a walk up to the CIC hut. We hadn't really any big plans to get on any routes but were open minded and had a large supply of optimism and a guidebook in the bags! Things were pretty wild on the walk in and despite a lull for a short while, we decided to call it a day and do some dry tooling instead! Some ice forming well higher up on the Ben for sure but a lot of snow blowing around a day.
