Ben Nevis in 'Scottish' weather!

Today I was out working with Dave B as we guided Kim and his 7 friends from London on the Ben.
The team was certainly treated to some good Scottish conditions with snow, sleet and plenty spindrift spicing things up a bit! The guys did exceptionally well and a strong performance from them meant Dave and I were happy to push on to the summit  despite the wind and spindrift. Lots of scouring on the Mountain Track and a lot of snow getting shifted around today.
We made a quick descent to get out of the wind with a total time on the hill being an impressive 7 hours- well done guys!
