Up the Pony Track. Mountain covered with mist. Only a few glimpses of the sun all day. Well constructed trail. Interesting collection of summit structures when shrouded in mist.

Ascended via the pony track and descended via the Carn Mor Dearg arete which gives great views of the north face, camped at the Glen Nevis Campsite. Photos and route map-https://www.flickr.com/photos/64069866@N05/albums/72157667534814286/with/26587748951/

Winter...but the conditions were summer-like. Hot and sunny day, snow only near the top. Fantastic views, memorable day.

Flew to Inverness for a weekend to meet a friend, we drove to the (free) car park at Achintee farm and hiked up in a little under 3hrs. Still lots of snow near the top, even in June. Unspectacular summit covered in clouds, although there were some nice views on the walk up.

Took an extra day while running around Scotland to walk up this fun summit. Sea-level air is like cheating, even when you are not in shape.......a start of 6am saw me on the summit at 9am. Gotta love the October sun at this latitude - it was pretty chilly at the top. Clear skies and high pressure made for a wonderful if non-typical day.

Made it to the top in just under 3 hours. Visibility good until on the summit plateau. Descending was very tough on my knees. Recovered in time to climb Snowdon three days later. Really enjoyed meeting other hikers, especially at the Glen Nevis Youth Hostel.

Low clouds / dense fog made us rethink our loop route up the arĂȘte, so we stuck for the trade/tourist route. I didn't mind - we made good time <3 hrs up - and met fantastic people along the way. Amazing views of surrounding water and mountains - this is one of the most beautiful places on earth! I feel fortunate to have set foot on this summit.

Normal route, with more than 350 people on the way. Fog above 900m in the morning, higher in the afternoon. I didn't expect so many people up there!

Scrambled up with a church summer camp group, then down the switchbacks. Reckon I'd appreciate it a lot more these days!

Four times on it, only got a view this day! Winter really does make it a more interesting prospect. Despite the early start, it was worth it to have the skies clear on the descent to see the highlands in their glory.

Climbed with sierramtngoat. We were supposed to do a traverse on the arete, but the low clouds and wind made that a poor choice. So we stuck to the main route.

wanderweg83Three Peaks charity hike  Sucess!


Did this as part of a 3 Peaks charity challenge. We started around 0100 in the morning. Long, steep slog to the summit, but there were some gorgeous views of the Highlands from its slopes.

Stayed in the hostel at the trailhead. Had beautiful sunny weather for the hike to the summit, unusual for Scotland. Beautiful country, memorable experience.

Woke up to a beautiful sunny day and my Ben Nevis hike was planned in May!! Could not have been luckier. A little fog rolled across the summit from time to time but otherwise spectacular views in all directions.

Final mountain of the week. My third mountain, Ben Nevis via the mountain track. Did this one alone as the guided group was cancelled the day before. A lot of fun.

Tried the arete, but it was far scarier than expected. Quite an easy walk up via the standard route. Enjoyed the trip.
