CMD arete Ben Nevis

Updated: 2 days ago

The CMD arête on Ben Nevis was Pauls’ goal today and it was perfect weather for it. We made good progress up to the summit and Paul skipped along the classic ridge. With time in hand we decided to descend down Ledge Route rather than the main path, making for a classsic horseshoe. The summer alpine flowers are doing well after the long harsh winter with the rare Sibbaldia all along the Ledge Route path.
