Ledge Route on Ben Nevis 25th August 2017

This week has seen some unsettled weather in the Highlands but did not stop Phoebe (age12) and her Dad enjoying an outing on Ledge Route. Deciding that they wanted to ascend Ben Nevis by a more challenging route than the tourist path we set off onto the North Face of Ben Nevis. Not seeing anyone else we had the mountain to ourselves and scrambled up this fine route to the top of Carn Dearg. Phoebe now named the “mountain goat” found this to be much better than “just walking” From Carn Dearg we made our way across the plateau to meet the tourist path to the top of Ben Nevis. Well done Phoebe and Dad.
