A good winters day out on Ben nevis

Jan 20, 2014

A good day out on Ben Nevis today with Jonathan putting in some good mileage looking at winter skills and winter mountaineering techniques. We went up Corrie Leis, (where there is some nice looking ice, see the ben nevis conditions page). Then, over the summit and back down ledge route. Freezing level slowly dropped during the day and it was a nice afternoon with some good views and sun. Coming down ledge route gave some great views.
