25.02.13 - Green Gully IV,3 Ben Nevis

Andy and I had an early start  this morning in order to get another classic 'Cold Climb' ticked off.  We slogged up to Green Gully and were delighted to have beaten the crowds and were first on the route.  The route itself was in very good condition (as is pretty much everything on the Ben at the minute) and provided a few interesting moves on bomber neve.  After Topping out, we abbed down No3 Gully to see whether it was worth getting on Comb Gully, but when we got there, two teams were queuing for the route already, so we called it a day! we spent the remainder of the day going over Anderson Threads, Ice screw belays and other low level ice related activities! anothing smashing day on the Ben!
