Ledge Route, Ben Nevis
Updated: Apr 9
Ledge Route on Ben Nevis was the choice today, and what a difference from yesterday with the weather. Cold, blue skys and some snow falling as well. The focus today was on mountaineering ropework, to add onto the rope work we covered yesterday. There was a heavy frost from about the height of the CIC hut and whilst on Ledge Route we even had some snow fall which made the ridge look more wintery. With the decrease in temperatures the remaining slushy snow in the gullies is now rock hard, so any amont of fresh snow will settle on top as a weak layer.
