Tower Ridge, Ben Nevis

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

With a thaw last night coupled with rain, we know there wasn’t going to ve much winter left today. But Tower Ridge is a classic in any conditions and worth the walk in.  

The bottom half was mostly summer conditions with patches of snow. It was only when we got to the eastern traverse and the chock stone did the temperatures drop (a bit).  From then on it was verglas over the rocks which made for a tricky tower gap.
