Tower ridge, snow free at last!

Jul 07, 2015

Up Tower ridge yesterday with Tony and Neil. The ridge is well clear of snow now and it is quite impressive how the snow has cleared quickly from the North face and the plateau in the last couple of weeks. We descended down ledge route and that too is completely clear of snow. There is still quite a bit of snow in the cores and main gullies for skiing!

Looking up the North face of Ben Nevis from the CIC hut.
