Ben Nevis, Mountain Track
Good weather on Ben Nevis today for most of the way, but the fairly frequent strong gusts kept the temperatures down. But when the wind wasn’t blowing it was warm in the sun.
My team of 5 made a good effort of the snow and ice which started at about 600m on the mountain and is rock hard all the way, with some steep slopes and long run outs on the zig zag section of the mountain, good footwork in crampons is key.
