Gloop to Woop

An amazing transformation from the conditions last saturday has brought stellar conditions all over the Highlands. Ben Nevis has turned into a sea of first time “sticks”…….Awesome! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After 5 days of enjoying classics it was time to get onto something a little bigger. Rudders and I headed up the Ben towards the Minus/Orion area to see what was going on. In the end we opted for Orion Directissma….basically Orion Direct Direct. We got 9 pitches of continuously great climbing. Occassionally there were some good belays too!

Plenty of teams cruising up the original route and plenty of other options available for the bold. We’ve left our kit up there, so light bags tomorrow.
