Tower ridge, Ben Nevis

Today i was on Tower Ridge, Ben Nevis, shadowing Abacus Mountaineering.  Good alpine conditions at the moment: dry rock and powder and a little rime ice. 

There is a lot of fresh, unstable wind slab around as well with the strong winds today, ridges and buttresses are best if they are safe to get to.
