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

Four days running some scrambling courses in the Skye Cuillins the past few days. Poor weather at the start but it did get better and the midge didn't bother us so thats something. Got onto the Skye ridge a couple of times and did some great routes including:
