Stag party on Ben Nevis

|Today Ewan and his team had come up from London on the sleeper for phase one of the Stag Do.  I picked them up at the train station at 10am and had to get them up and down Ben Nevis and back for their train to Edinburgh for 5.30.  Conditions were quite mixed, lots of sunshine and lots of snow after the 3rd zig zag.  Were managed to avoid all the snow showers and never needed to pop on waterproofs.  There was a bit of traction control failures on the snow (especially Ben who had boots which had a similar sole to bowling shoes!)  We managed to get up and down in 6 hours which gave us time to celebrate with a pint in the Ben Nevis Inn.  Well done to all the team and I hope the rest of the weekend goes well.  Im off to Skye on Saturday for a ridge attempt.  The weather looks great for the next few days so if you want any scrambling, climbing or Munro bagging, let me know as I can stay up a little longer.  Not to be missed.
