I am working for Abacus Mountain Guides for a few the next few days. To start things off, I was joined by John and Simon for what was to be an amazing day on Ben Nevis. The guys were keen to learn and improve on their Alpine experiences so we chose Ledge Route for their first taste of Scottish Winter mountaineering. We pitched, moved together and short roped along the route, they even took on the final ‘alpine ridge’ under their own steam taking coils and belaying each other where necessary. It was a stunning day with lots of people taking advantage of the good conditions, we even had a ski descent of Ledge route for good measure! Check out those blue skies……….
