Ice & winter climbing: Tower Ridge & Point 5 Gully

 

This weekend, Paddy has been out on Ben Nevis leading a couple of days of guided ice climbing for returning clients Scott and Nick.

Scott and Nick are already experienced winter climbers, but they wanted to push on and try something a little harder, namely the classic Tower Ridge (IV 3) and the world class ice line Point 5 Gully (V 5).

Here are some pictures of the guys on both of those lines. Good effort!
