Sheltered on Ledge Route, Ben Nevis

Back on Ben Nevis today, this time with Chris, Andy and John. We experienced a few strong gusts whilst walking up to the north face of Ben Nevis this morning, but fortunately, once tucked in beneath North Trident Buttress, we were well sheltered from the prevailing winds.

The route proved to be no problem for Chris, Andy and John, and we made good progress up it. Needless to say, it was quite damp underfoot! On reaching the summit of Carn Dearg, we were exposed to the full force of the winds, which remained with us as we headed over to the summit of Ben Nevis.

Despite the conditions, plenty of people battling their way to the summit via the mountain path.
