The weather today turned out to be much better than the forecasts suggested. Jason, Mal, John and I made an ascent of Castle Ridge on Ben Nevis, expecting the rains to arrive sometime late morning/early afternoon. Instead, we enjoyed a completely dry day, with the rains only starting at about 5pm.
Conditions on the route were excellent, with bone-dry rock. The summit was fairly busy with walkers, but there wasn't another soul on the north face of the mountain today. We continued our day by descending Ledge Route.
