CIC Hut, Ben Nevis

posted 30 Sep 2013, 16:10 by Allan McCulloch
Friday 20th September - Sunday 22nd September 


Although soaking wet on Friday's night walk up to the CIC hut, our gear dried nicely by the gas stove of the fancily redeveloped and extended CIC hut. Saturday thankfully was mostly dry and members made the most of it with various climbing / walking routes being tackled including attempts (with variable success!) on a rather damp and misty Tower Ridge, a scramble up the Ledge Route, a traverse of the Carn Mor Dearg arete and walks up Ben Nevis. The weather had deteriorated significantly by Sunday morning so most folks had a leisurely morning (after eating and drinking aplenty the night before!) before simply heading back down to the north face car park.
