Description

Ben Nevis has 2 sides – there is the side with the main mountain path, which most tourists will take to the summit, and then there is the North Face, where you’ll find Ledge Route. The North Face hosts dramatic rocky amphitheatres, spectacular scenery, cliffs and often snow fields. Ledge Route is a brilliant scramble through some magnificent terrain, often in unlikely situations. On Ledge Route, there are a few choices to make the scramble easier or harder depending on the group. This is an excellent ‘harder’ way to the summit, if you’ve already done the mountain path, or want to avoid the clouds on that path.
