Tower Ridge

Yesterday I was working for Mike Pescod as an MIC aspirant, on Tower ridge. A Brilliant day, calmer conditions in comparison to most of the winter, although still snowing consisently higher up. This sadly resulting in yet another avalanche on Ben nevis, and this time with two climbers caught up in it. We were in a good place up on the ridge. This was my first time on tower ridge this year and I couldnt believe the amount of snow, it looked a little different, with the usual belays somewhat hidden.  
A great day out with the group of three over from Ireland.
Fantastic snow crests along the ridge.

A very white walk off for the team.
