Tower Ridge and the CMD arete
Today I was back out with Graham, a client who I was out with last year and wanted to do some climbing on Ben Nevis. Tower Ridge was the obvious option and was a route Graham has had his eye on for a while. Fortunately another lovely day and not another soul on the ridge, or on the north side as far as we could see. I don't know how many times I have done Tower Ridge but I never get bored of it. Always interesting and exciting all the way to the top and everyone responds to the difficulties in their own way. On the top was a different story, lots of folk shouting, smoking and falling over. We thought lets head for Carn Mor Dearg, a Munro Graham hadn't done...and some peace away from the crouds. Another great day and now for a few days off. No pictures today.
