Ledge Route

Dessie and I headed up Ledge Route on Ben Nevis today. A superb grade 1/2 scramble with fine airy situations. The mist and rain cleared to give sunshine when we topped out so we followed the corrie rim round to the summit. This was Dessie's first time on the North Face of the Ben and he now has his sights set on Tower Ridge after some awesome views across to it today!

Mamores Day

Had a great day with Dessie and Glenda on Stob Ban and Mullach Nan Corean in the Mamores. Mixed weather in the morning cleared to give sunshine and spectacular views over to the Ben and South to Glen Coe. This is a lovely ridge walk with some fantastic scenery. Met some folks celebrating a final Munro too, congratulations again!

3 Peaks on Ben Nevis

Back off the Ben after working for Maximum Adventure. A large group of about 60 made it to the summit and back despite some rather wet and windy conditions near the top.

Skye Trip

Jonny and I returned from Skye after a wet attempt at the Cuillin Ridge. The weather window we were hoping for didn't arrive until 7 hours later than we needed it .After a rather wet and windy bivvy on Bealach a Coire Lochan we went for a wander around Coire a Ghrunda and back to Glen Brittle for a chill out time on the beach
