Glover's Chimney IV, Ben Nevis

Today Ian had a quiet day whilst Ann and I headed up Ben Nevis to climb Glover's Chimney IV

Number 3 buttress, Glover's climbs the dark, steep area on the middle/right
Pitch 1 of Thompson's
Pitch 1 of Thompson's
 This great route climbs the buttress to join No 3 Gully buttress for the last pitch. I feel the direct finish is the best finish.

Final direct pitch, after joinign No. 3 Gully Buttress
Whilst sitting on the summit, taking in the rope for Ann, a helicopter came in and collected a climber who'd fallen on North Gully and broken his ankle. Chatting later over food it turned out another instructor, Dan Robinson, who I was eating with had witnessed the fall and arranged the rescue.
