Description

Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis – the Classic’s Classic. If you can only go up Ben Nevis once – this is the way you have to go. If you only do one climb in your life – this is the one you have to do!

It is only graded as a Diff, but it is 600m in length, and all the difficulties are waiting high up on the mountain, the Great Tower, the Eastern Traverse and Tower Gap.

The journey up the climb, passes through the North Face of the Ben, and on show is the tremendous rock architecture and majesty of the mountain.
