Dave MacLeod climbing Moonwalk on Ben Nevis
On the off-chance that you have a bit of time on your hands, here's a brilliant short film showing just how good conditions were on Ben Nevis a couple of days before the UK went into lockdown. We were fortunate enough to be running our second five day CIC Hut Week at the time and in fact, we stayed an extra night so that we could make the most of the conditions up there. I'm certain that 19 seconds in, that's us on Hadrian's Wall Direct. The following day, we climbed Orion Face Direct before heading back down to Fort William. Over the 6 days, we climbed: Minus 3 Gully, Gutless, Minus 2 Gully into North East Buttress, Right-Hand Wall Route, Vanishing Gully into 1934 Route and up Tower Ridge, Hadrian's Wall and Orion Face Direct.
We've put our dates up for our CIC Hut Weeks winter 2021:
– 28 February – 5 March 2021
– 14-19 March 2021
