Number 3 & 4

 

Hunter Mountaineering – Private Guiding

I met Jo yesterday and she is preparing for her WML assessment. We made a plan today to climb some grade I gullies on Ben Nevis, look at the conditions, and look at a little ropework, but keeping it simple. Just below the top of Number 3 Gully, we decided to do 2 pitches so we could look at a very simple stomper belay. The top out was easy, and even easier was Number 4 Gully on the way down.

We didn’t see many people, but there were teams on North Gully, Number 3 Gully Buttress and South Gully.
