3/2/2015 - Superb Winter Climbing Conditions on Ben Nevis

The heavy snowfalls and wild weather conditions across the Highlands over the last few weeks have truly reaped dividends for the winter mountaineer & even ski touring enthusiasts.  Many quality ice lines have been climbed on 'The Ben' in the last few days including some highly prized and rarely climbed lines like Shield Direct & Gemini.

Point Five and Hadrians Wall have been in good condition also along with many of the other classic ice & buttress routes.

The snow cover is good around the hills also with various teams reporting good ski touring conditions including some fine steep couloir skiing like Easy Gully at Creag Meagaidh.
