Ken: The first of the season’s snow showers fell on Ben Nevis, today, although only really settling above 1250m. Rich and I climbed Tower Ridge and encountered the first specks of snow at the top of the Little Tower and by the Great Tower, there was a noticeable amount collecting on the ledges, particularly on the northern flanks of the ridge. There wasn’t enough to slow us down, and no doubt that it will be all gone by the end of the week. Still, nice to see it!
For Rich, this was his first time up the mountain and not a bad way to open his Ben Nevis account!
