12.05.13 - Ben Nevis via the mountain path

Today I was working for Adventure Nevis, guiding Frankie and Dagmara on Ben Nevis.  The weather today was fairly decent if a bit claggy which soon deteriorated quite rapidly as we hit the 1000m mark.   Conditions underfoot on the mountain path today were very good with soft snow making life a bit easier.  Once on the summit plateau the wind picked up considerably and visibility deteriorated to zero, out came the map and compass.  Ben Nevis did not make it easy for these two young women to summit today and they should both be very proud of their efforts.Thanks gals for a great day of banter and a massive well done on climbing the Ben in challenging conditions, you definitely earned it!

Dagmara and Frankie smile before setting off!
