Winter mountaineering on Ben Nevis

Feb 08, 2016

A nice day on Ben Nevis today with Alan. Looking for plenty of mileage on crampons and with an axe in our hands. After dropping off some clean tea towels at the hut !, we headed up Corrie Lies, and the clag came in. Tricky route finding up slopes that were fairly loaded so safe travel options were discussed and used. Once on the CMD Arete up to the summit it was nice hard snow which gave plenty of chances to look at good crampon technique.

Stepping it up tomorrow with some grade I/II action in Glencoe.

The trident buttresses looking epic in the sunshine.

An amazingly empty summit. (It wasn't for long!)
