Tower Ridge, Ben Nevis

Mick has never been up Ben Nevis so we decided to head up Tower Ridge today and climb the mountain in style. This awesome ridge gives nearly 2000ft of scrambling/climbing to the summit of The Ben and we had it entirely to ourselves today. It was drizzly all day and we had to fight the winds at times but that only added to the fun! A brilliant day out on a cracking route.

A few people have emailed me about timings of the day. We left Fort William at 8:00am and parked at Torlundy. We were at the base of the route for 10:30am and topped out at 1:30pm. We short pitched most of the route with some short roping (moving together). We were back in the bar for 4:00pm after a visit to the summit.
