/ ben nevis conditions question
Thinking of ascending Ben this weekend with kids
Q what are the snow conditions like on tourist path and also CMD arete
I don't think you'll need to touch snow apart from the summit plateau. I haven't been up, just seen from a distance.
Conditions ok, slushy snow on the summit plateau.
good for snowballs? - oh no
i should have gone there straight away - pics tell it all - looks like there will be snowballs - eek
some up to date conditions pictures here:
No snow on the CMD arete.
