Another cracking report from John who guided Tony on a Winter Climb of Ben Nevis. The next available date for our Winter Ben Nevis Climb is January 29th
On Sunday Tony and I went to ascend Ben Nevis, which was the main objective of his course. Tony had already covered the basic winter skills the day before, so we made good progress up the icy then snowy Pony Track, practicing our crampon use. The cloud came in around 900m, and we were glad of the gloriously rimed cairns to assist our navigation.
