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

A great four days winter climbing with clients at the cic hut the past few days. Monday and tuesday I was with Ronny from Holland who had never done any ice climbing before. He does however do plenty of trad rock climbing, so its interesting to see how well you can make the translation from summer to winter. After all he climbed Vanishing / the curtain and Orion direct in the first two days! After that I
