3 days ice climbing with Glenmore Lodge staying at the Cic hut.
Our first encounter was Mortons neuroma followed by jubilation and an abseil in the dark off an Abolokov belay.
A great view of Tower ridge
Topping out,and thanks to our instructor Giles for an amazing day.
A walk over the summit plateau to gully 4 for our descent
Once back in the hut we dined on soup,haggis, and ginger cake and custard.
A truly amazing experience I long to repeat.
After a drive back to Glenmore Lodge for coffee and cake and a chat about our experience it was time to head off.
A good deal was to be found at the Hilton at Coylumbridge. On checking in I was asked by the receptionist if I'd been skiing that day,hell no, I've been ice climbing on The Ben ,not sure if she was impressed but I was duly upgraded to a better room !!
