Strong winds, gales, mild temperatures . . . the forecast was correct. Today I took Stephen Up the pony track on Ben Nevis. The day out was a gift from his previous employer, which I'm sure he'll be more than happy to pass on his thanks. We hit freezing level at around 1200m, it was raining all the way up there. Visibility was poor from half way up the zig zag's but despite all of this we still managed to get to the summit. Isi from the Ice Factor came along to shadow the day to see what need to be done to get someone up Ben Nevis in the winter.
