Happy to hear that it was very straightforward, music to my ears!!!
Can I ask......did you have to use your crampons and/or ice axe at any point?

I didn't even think about that simon-b but on checking the map I think you're probably right, well spotted!

Thanks Polly, We didn't use them at all that day but the conditions were perfect i.e. the snow wasn't frozen hard enough, for 99% of the route, to make the going slippy. I wouldn't be up there without them though as another day could be very different!

Thanks Stretch, I've edited the report, added slightly bigger and some new pics so it won't be the 9th now

Ah, no no no. Soaking up the views, that's the whole purpose of a walk like this. And when you read the comments above, I'd say the photo stops were a good idea too!
Love how the Ben looks quite a peaky peak from out east.
