Ledge Route, Ben Nevis

Updated: 7 days ago

Ledge route on Ben Nevis was my 4th ascent of the year on the mountain which is not bad considering its only the 4th January. With warmer temperatures there was a bit less slippery frost on the walk in, with audable ice fall coming off the cliffs. Todays focus was on mountaineering ropework, looking at short roping and moving together, with all the intricacies of good rope grip, where the rope goes, good natural belays and body positioning.

We did wear crampons on Ledge Route due to the heavy frost and the main path down was very slippery.
