Wonderful Route  Sucess!

Climbed in a mixture of mist and sun in winter. A great mountaineering day out..the ridge just seems to go on and on!

Second ascent  Sucess!

Summited again in 2009, this time had some visibility on the arete as cloud came and went. Summit of Ben Neivs was in the clouds.

First ascent  Sucess!

My first ascent of Ben Nevis. Started at Fort William before 8am and areached the summit of Ben Nevis at 15:15. The arete was totaly under cloud. Deep snow going up the back of Ben Nevis, but none on the arete.

first scottish scrambling  Sucess!

A nice introduction to scrambling in Scotland. Nothing too difficult, but a nice route nonetheless. Weather held out great except for the super thick cloud that limited the views and made some compass work necessary to get onto the ridge at first. Fun outing overall.

Awesome  Sucess!

The weather sucked something chronic but made the rare fleeting views through the clouds all the more special. Really fun route with presumably spectacular views! ^_^

Great Start  Sucess!

We have done this route a fewtimes. It was my first ridge, my first Alpine feel route! Flippin great

End to the WHW  Sucess!

A surprisingly great day sandwiched between horizontal rain and a billion midges. It was a fun ridge walk in near solitude; I forgot how crowded the summit was going to be!

Hot Sun  Sucess!

Lisa and I did this in around June 1997. We took a long approach up Glen Nevis, and then followed the Allt Ciore Giubhsachan to it's headwaters. A scramble up one of the ridges took us onto the arete and up to BN summit. From CMD we could see as far as the western isles.

Winter treat  Sucess!

Had a geat winters day on it, weather was grim with snow and strong winds blowing in from the north, but what the hell that's what mountain days are all about isn't it?
