Ben Nevis Winter climbing conditions

I will be running a separate page for winter conditions on Ben Nevis once the 2015 - 2016 season gets underway. It is under the Winter section of the website. The link is here BEN NEVIS CONDITIONS.

Mountain Motion Blog

This is where you can find some pictures and blogs of what I have been up to. I'm not the most avid blogger in the world!, but when the Winter comes there will be regular conditions updates for Ben nevis as well as a dedicated Ben Nevis conditions page this coming winter.

Cheers
Richard 


Space still available for a weeks ice climbing on Ben nevis, staying at the CIC hut.

After all he climbed Vanishing / the curtain and Orion direct in the first two days! After that I

Headed into Stob Corrie nan Lochan in Glencoe today for a mountaineering themed day. One axe, a few slings and a short rope. An often overlooked route is to pick your way up summit buttress by which ever way takes your fancy, looking at the firtst picture, the ridge between light and shade works well.
