Less than thrilling path that we chose and more of a slog upwards, look forward to doing this peak on a route worthy of its reputation.

What a day! Hot weather made it quite a toughie, but it was well worth it,as you can see from the pic. I think we were extremely lucky to get a day as clear as this, especially with it being our 1st time. I know people who have been up 5+ times and never had a clear day!

This was my first moutain larger than anything in the Mournes and I loved it. Started out in light rain, continued in more rain! Virtually no visibiltiy from half way up. Had the best cup of tea in my life on the summit!

BermoRoute Climbed: Allt Choire Giubhsachan, Cairn Mor Dearg Date Climbed: 20th August 2005  Sucess!


Started out in mist at 9am from Water of Nevis car park. Mist soon burnt off, and sun shone brightly for the rest of the day. Spectacular weather, one of those rare clear warm days on Ben Nevis. We were happy to find there is a faint track up along the river of Allt Choire Giubhsachan. It fades out on the marshy flats, but re-emerges on the steep sections. Made it to the Col between Carn Mor Dearg and Aonachs at 12:30pm, took our time with lots of long rests in the warm sunshine. there is also a faint track up the Watershead to Cairn Mor Dearg. Took us two hours, and then two hours to Ben Nevis! Totally clear views from summit. It is a great route with spectacular views all the way, and even though it was August we were completely on our own until Cairn Mor Dearg.

Joerg Marretsch

A wonderful, warm morning with blue sky at normal route (not to much people). Reach the summit after 3,5 hours and see the wall of clouds coming from the south-west. Fast descend over Carn Mor Dearg Arete to the summit of Carn Mor Dearg. During the hike down near the small river All a Mhullian it begins to rain.

Almost perfect weather considering it was late March. Lots of snow at the top. Cloud only closed in a little bit at the top, but otherwise warm and sunny.

In a word ... RAIN. Okay, a few more. Fog, drizzle, mist. Well that about sums it up. Nice view ... of 5 feet in front of me and my feet. Had a good time anyway. I loved Scotland and the people!

Attila the HunRoute Climbed: CMD Arete Route Date Climbed: 10th July 2004  Sucess!

Attila the Hun

A nice climb, pity about the weather. The whole thing was shrouded in mist and fog from about 7-800m up. Nice bit of scrambling to be had on the arete coming up to the Ben. I wouldn't recommend the standard tourist route. Seems a wee bit boring.

In the clouds most of the way up. Rained near the top. A lot of people on the same route. Nothing spectacular

A monster alpine day out on the best hill in the land. Perfect alpine weather, mint gulley conditions in no 4 and the CMD arete was awesome. Climbing team of Peter 'the lion' Jackson; Alastiar 'two axes' Williamson and Mark 'Lord Champagne' Radford.

Did this with my wife on our 3rd anniversary while traveling in the UK. Had a great morning with the top completely enveloped in mist.

HikeMonkeyRoute Climbed: CMD Arete Date Climbed: August 1999  Sucess!


I climbed the CMD arete on a sunny (!) day with Monty after we'd finished walking the West Highland Way. There was a piper on top. We could see all the way back to Glasgow. Almost. A great way to end a great walk.

Dave Dinnell

Even the standard Rt. can be challenging in the right conditions. Hiked up with my fiance (she married me anyway) in typical weather-foggy, "are you sure this is the way?", rainy, snowy, and windy. View from the summit? Could barely see my feet. Wonder what winter conditions are like...
