Walked up via normal route (in Sandals) while on the way cycling through the highlands from Glasgow to Edinburgh between two business dates.
Summit itself was in clouds, but nice weather throughout the trip.

Climbed after completing the West Highland Way. An incredible week... An inch of snow at sea level made for an fun and interesting climb. Views on the way up/down, total whiteout on top- very cold. glad to have a compass, crampons, etc...

We climbed to the summit on Indicator right hand (V,5) and than descended to do Smith's route (V,5). Although it was to warm (the ice was melting very fast!) we had a great day of climbing. Climbed with Dave Sykes during the BMC International Meet 2009.

Was there in summertime and also in the winter. Two different worlds. In wintertime we climbed central and comb gully with a guide. Summertime was only the red burn but we camped on the summit... Yes we dragged all that stuff up there.

NanulsEpic winter treat (twice)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2008


First time a real long day, climbed from the Glen Nevis YHA, skirted around the bottom of the cliffs to the CIC hut, crossed the streams and contoured around the side of Carn Mor Dearg. Gained the crest of the ridge someway to the north in detereorating weather conditions and headed south to the summit of Carn Mor Dearg. Crossed the CMD Arete in high wind and increasingly heavy snow. Then onto the Ben in deep snow, where we got the summit to ourselves. Descended via the tourist track.

Second time the day started well as we ascended The Ben via No. 5 Gully (easy but fun grade I winter). Had real trouble breaking through the cornice at the top, as as we were doing so the weather changed for the worse. Finally managed to break through very cold, and made a quick escape down towards the tourist path.

It was my first "real summit", we were really happy to reach the top. Long walk in the fog it was. And the most crowded hike I have ever seen.

Another traditional ascent of the Ben. Cloudy and rain all the way up. Zero visibility on top. Rain and cloud all the way back down... But we'd do it again (but a different route!)

Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2004


I was on my way back from Kilimanjaro to the states with a planned weekend stop over in London so I decided to get another country highpoint while I was in the neighborhood. So after 12 hours of traveling from Africa to Heathrow, I rented a car and drove 10 hours straight to Scotland. Did the climb the next day and drove back to London the following day and flew home the day after that. There was more snow on Ben Nevis at 4,400 feet than on Kili at 19,100.

My wife and I climbed this to get in shape for our trek on the Haute Route later in the year. We were hoping to do the CMD route but it was raining when we started so we did the tourist route instead. We had every from of precipitation known to man at various points of the route including a snow storm when we summited.
