Winter returns...

We decided to try another route up Ben Nevis today so headed to Glen Nevis to head up the Waterslide. This route couldn't be more different to the Tourist track with little or no track, a feeling of remoteness and stunning views! Didn't see a soul until the summit!

We headed onto Carn Dearg just as the weather deteriorated very quickly. A few very loud and close sounding rumbles of thunder caused us to quicken the pace onto the plateau.

 By this time we were in a full on white out with very few things to sight on. We swiftly picked up the line of cairns and followed the usual bearing to the zig zags.

 A quick bike ride down the Glen to pick up the car finished an awesome day!
