Snow, snow, snow on Ben Nevis. Sledge Route??

Feb 11, 2014

Alex and I went up Ledge route on Ben Nevis today, after doing an intro day yesterday with crampons and an axe. Lots of snow but once on the route it was great conditions. Have a look at the Ben Nevis conditions page for more pictures of what Ben nevis looks like at the moment. The descent is amazing down the Red Burn. It is probably one of the best ski's in Scotland at the moment. After topping out into a complete white room whiteout we decided not too bother heading for the summit. I even had to get my compass out to find the red burn!! Unheard of for me!

Ben Nevis in all its glory this morning.


Alex on Ledge Route, not the time to practice ice axe arrest!!


Heading down the Red Burn, where are my Trab's..
