06.09.13 Ben Nevis mountain path with a twist

Today I was working for Mountain and Glen on a Ben Nevis ascent.  The group this time had opted to do a three peaks challenge with a bit of a difference.  Instead of trying to bag all 3 in 24hrs as is the usual, they had opted to climb all three while cycling between them!  Bearing in mind these guys had a long cycle from Ben Nevis back to Kinlochleven, I decided to choose a more scenic and leisurely approach to guiding on the Ben today.  We cut off the beaten track after the half way point and the team enjoyed stunning views of the North Face before reaching the summit and back to Glen Nevis.  A great day on the mountain with everyone in the group reaching the summit!  Great effort guys!
