Date Climbed: May 15, 2013
Attempted to scale the Ben via CMD Arete first but failed high on Carn Mor Dearg thanks to treacherous snow fields and zero visibility. A plod up the Mountain Track set the record straight but at a cost: My total ascent on this day added up to 2450 meters. That's if I had climbed the Ben two times back to back. It sure felt like it.

Had a great time, this was the first time up Ben, a few years later a few friends and I did a summer day hike up. Always a great time in Ft William.

Hi Eza,
not quite as warm as your home Pyrenees I bet.
We're not going to Benasque this year but up to the Highlands again probably to do Suilven and Ben More and maybe back to An Teallach.
cheers Johnnie

Long time ago... Started from the Caledonian Canal at Banavie via Allt A Mhulinn and then on to the main drag. Next time, camped in Glen Nevis. Up early and down in time for a 10am train to Mallaig.

From the very start, it was a most unpromising day. But I had flown in from Spain to climb Ben Nevis, and finally reached the summit starting from the Glen Nevis visitor center with my friend Juan. We used the Mountain Path up to Lochan Meall an t-Suidhe, but after that we entered the Allt a'Mhuilinn valley to reach the CIC hut and the CMD arĂȘte from Coire Leis. This last section is not really advisable, but we chose it when strong winds kept us back from the CMD... and we just didn't feel in the mood to turn back and re-join the Mountain Path.
In the end, summit without any sights and lots of clothing to dry

I was the only one on the summit at sunset (10pm-ish) with an amazing cloud inversion. Was hallucinating on descent (long story!) and the weather began to turn rather nasty where my eye lashes began to freeze. One to remember!

Took the Mountaineer's Route and climbed Nevis in prefect weather. A little wind, cloudless skies. One of my all time favorites.

Date Climbed: Jul 20, 1982


On the first day of a week long expedition backpacking around the highlands carrying all the kit and food for a week. Not sure it was the right choice for the first day! Incredible weather for Scotland, didn't see a cloud all day, indeed, all week! The sunburn sticks in my memory.

bertesqfalse teeth  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2011
Went up to the summit of the Ben last Friday temperatures were very high .My arms were sunburnt and I lost my two front false teeth around the 1 mile stage. I informed the hordes on the mountain of my plight and a mass search ensued. On the descent I was informed about thirty times that the teeth belonging to the guy in the red t-shirt with the wee black cocker were in the Nevis centre. A big thank you to the unknown guy who found them and the staff at the Nevis centre who said that the chances of finding them were millions to one
