Stunning day on the Ben Nevis Ridges

Sep 07, 2015

A fabulous day on Ben Nevis today. At last some superb weather. Ian was keen to go up Observatory ridge and then down North East Buttress. So thats what we did. Ian was pretty competent and fit so from the bottom of Observatory to the bottom of North East Buttress took us five hours. Clean dry rock and fantastic views across an inversion that slowly lifted during the morning.

Just four abs needed down North East Buttress. Could have got away with three but we had lots of time so hey.

The inversion from the CIC hut.

Looking up to the ridges and glorious dry rock and blue skies! Yeah!
