Ledge Route, Ben Nevis

I took the boys up Ledge Route on the Ben today for the final day of their winter skills week. Its a bit more than you would expect on a winter walking week but we had dropped down to two people for our last day so decided to push things on a bit and the boys were mad for it. The snow in general was softer than we had yesterday on Aonach Mor but once on the ridge it was great, giving confidence inspiring foot placements and of course looking amazing. There were fresh snow showers all day and we had to forge the route as the first party on it for the day. Not a lot of other people out today and some more white out navigation from the summit - awesome end to a brilliant week, thanks folks.
