Ledge Route, Ben Nevis
Ledge Route on Ben Nevis today with Adrian for his Everest prep. We focused on good footwork on steep snow slopes in ascent and descent.
There is a lot of snow on Ledge route providing a simple mountaineering route, today did require a few kneeling positions against the gusts.
A short fight against the wind on the plateaux brought us to the top of Number 4 gully. Firm snow most of the way down but a few rocky sections starting to form.
