Snow on Ben Nevis

Looking over to Tower Ridge

Alan showing his strength...or lack of! ;)
 From the Italian Rivera to Ben Nevis.  Back to work today and our original plan was Tower Ridge.  On arrival to the CIC hut the weather was grim, wet, cold and windy.  The forecast was due to improve as the day went on but the evidence around us was not giving us much hope.  Linda wanted a pleasant experience on Tower Ridge, as we all did so we thought we would save it for another day.  Instead we cruised up Ledge route, a ridge that neither Alan and Linda have never done in summer.  Not another soul in sight or on earshot until we got to the mountain path where there were a few out enjoying the mountain.
Off the gangway

Plenty of snow nearing the top

Bit of rime ice on the cairn
