Blue skies on the Ben

Today was an early start on the Ben for Dave B and I with Susanna and her team of 3 peakers! The folks are all raising money for Comic Relief and with £8000 raised already, have had a great start!
A chilly start in the Glen saw us quickly make our way onto the snow which was very hard and still frozen this morning. Crampons and axes are still very much needed on the Mountain Track (despite a number of people chancing their luck without them). Before long were enjoying some crystal clear views over to Skye, the Cairngorms and Small Isles. A fantastic effort from everyone and best of luck with the rest of the challenge!
