The Curtain

With the good weather and cold conditions continuing, Kev and I headed up to the Ben with a few more ice screws than on Saturday! After seeing Cliff and his partner have a great time on the Curtain on Saturday, we were keen to give it a bash. By the time we arrived at the hut the first team on the route were already finishing the first pitch so there was no queuing today!
Hot Aches!!!

Pitch 1
The ice was great for placements on the first couple of pitches but not so good for screws.
Pitch 3 on the other hand was perfect, with great chewy ice and good screw placements too- a winner!

Pitch 2
Happy Chappies!
Not a bad place to spend Monday morning!
