Ledge Route, Ben Nevis

Updated: Apr 9


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.
