Ben Nevis 23/05/2011

 

En route to the summit

What a shocking week!  Was guiding for Rob Roy Tours this week – cancelled on monday – a good job given the 100mph winds.  However decided to chance Ben Nevis on the Wednesday and we were rewarded for our bravery.  Had 9 clients all from Germany….and we all made it to the top.  Rain only from the 4th zig zag to the top…and snow on the summit.  But everyone was in good spirits and very glad of the gloves we forced on them…thanks Charlie!

Happy Group on the Summit

Still saw at least four people completely ill equipped for the day – trainers, jeans and windcheaters…why do they keep doing it?
