What a stunner of a weekend! Unbroken sunshine, cold calm air and brilliant ice climbing gave us quite some success. Abacus Mountain Guides Donald, Ali, Steve, Louisa and Dave climbed Ledge Route, Tower Ridge, Crowberry Gully, Curved Ridge, Comb Gully, Ledge Route again, Gear Aonach Zig-Zags, Dorsal Arete, Twisting Gully and SC Gully.

With a mix of coaching leading, Alpine climbing, crevasse rescue, core movement skills as well as top quality guiding I think we made full use of the good conditions.

Most classic ice climbs were quite busy. There were people on Orion Face as well as Point Five Gully, Zero Gully, Hadrian's Wall Direct, Smith's Route, Psychedelic Wall and many others. It looks like we will have quite stable weather for the coming week too although not quite a sunny.
