The weekend has been amazing warm weather, ideal for being in the mountains. Dave has been out on Ben Nevis with Charmaine helping her prepare for a trip to the Alps this summer.
Day 1, the team headed for Tower Ridge for Charmaine’s first ascent of Ben Nevis and first views of the North Face. Tower was fairly quiet with 3 RAF MRT teams which the team passed, had lunch and passed again on the outside of the chimney after the eastern traverse. The team finished the day with a walk around the summit and a descent of the tourist path.
Day 2, up Castle Ridge and down Ledge Route was the objective, and it gave a tremendous day out with no one else on Castle and one other team who were sun bathing on Ledge Route.
