Tower ridge, ledge route and baby glaciers on Ben Nevis

Sep 29, 2015

Took Rab and Nick up Tower ridge yesterday and we came down ledge route to avoid the hordes. By far the best way down off the mountain if you are parked at the North Face carpark. A great and quick day, just over a couple of hours to get up the route. Lots of very deep snow patches in Observatory still which will soon start to grow again as the first snows come in the next month or so.

On the initial arete of Tower ridge.
