Winter climbing and ice climbing courses across Scotland, Ben nevis, Glencoe and the Skye Cuillin ridge
Hi all, I am now going to start updating this page as of Christmas 2015. Not much winter at the moment but patience is what all savvy winter climbers have as you are aware.
Being in a unique position of living in view of the North face and also working day in and out on the Ben I will update this page with pictures and what the local weather has been doing. This is separate from my usual blog and will focus solely on Ben nevis.
I will of course post up pictures of the crags and ice conditions when I am on Ben nevis for the day.
I know the North Face of Ben nevis better than most so can give sound advice and comment on what the conditions are doing. I have been around living and working here in Fort William more than most other self publicised bloggers (Alan K and Mike P excepted), and national Centres quite often ring me up to find out what conditions are like.... so I know the mountain well.
There is also an updated graph of temperatures at around 1100m which helps work out what is going on.
The link below goes to a graph that give the latest temperatures on Aonach Mor at around 1000m. This is a good indicator of what the temperature history has been for the bottom of the main crags around the North Face of Ben nevis.
