Tower ridge Ben Nevis

Dec 23, 2014

Kevin and I went up Tower ridge today, the conditions were even better than I had hoped. Great useful neve and ice, proper winter conditions with a bit of annoying breakable crust. The climbing pitches were excellent with some really useful ice and neve.

All in all a delight to climb at the moment and the rest of Ben nevis is looking good also. See the Ben Nevis conditions page in the winter climbing section.

Just above the Boulder after the first pitch.
