Day Out With Friends

Today I jumped on a plan that Gemma and Lena had already made, so it ended up being the 3 of us that went out for the day. They chose to go to Ben Nevis, and look for a climb. After some chat regarding time, fresh snow, train breaking, avalanche risk and crowds we ended up going over to the SW Ridge of the Douglas Boulder. The plan was for me and Lena to alternate lead. There were 2 other teams on the route in front of us, so we didn’t need to rush, in fact it felt quite chilled. I had a great day, so thank you for the invite to come out.
