Tower Ridge with Grivel

Jul 07, 2015

13th June

A trip up to the CIC hut on 13th June with Grivel. They have some amazing new Harnesses out this year. The Apollo, Ares and Poseidon. Each harness is specifically designed for either Rock / Alpine or Winter and ice. They are fantastically comfortable and lightweight. We tested them by heading up Tower ridge on Ben nevis with Oliviero Gobbi, Grivels managing Director and Alexis Vallet, their international sales manager. Also with us are Steve and Paul from Mountain Boot Company, the UK importers for Grivel.

Axe and crampons were still needed at the top and on the descent down Ledge Route.
