/ Ben Nevis Summit Shelter
Hi Alec - I was up there with a party on Saturday around 3pm and found it open. We cleared all the snow out, and chipped the ice from around the door, allowing the door to be properly closed. We left it secure.
Bloody annoying that folks cannot take the time/effort to do likewise!
The only pleasing thing was there was very little litter in it, (we carried off what was there).
Hopefully Lochaber MRT can still get to their rescue kit without too much hassle.
Well done Johnny, I didn't have the energy!
It was full of litter and stinking of piss and shite in the summer :( animals.
Standard. I wouldn't go in there unless I was hypothermic.
Any photos of the summit ?
I am getting stir crazy.
Too claggy that day I'm afraid......
