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.
