Ledge Route, Ben Nevis
Updated: Apr 9
Today was day 1 of 5 and we were on Ben Nevis. Plan A was Neptune gully, but after finding dodgy, cruddy ice that i was pretty convinced wasn’t going to hold my weight half way up the 1st pitch. I made the decision to reverse back down and change plans. Plan B was a quick hop round to number 5 gully to make an ascent of the classic Ledge Route, which was well banked out and made for a good mountaineering day.
