In descent after tower ridge then down that improbable looking face (not as bad as it first appears) to stay at the CIC hut

Straight forward route, sticking to the crest is much better and not difficult. A brilliant day in glorious sunshine.

Stunning day, definitely one of the best ways up the Ben. Came round from the tourist path and passed the CIC Hut to check out the North face for the first time and then scrambled directly up to Cairn Mor Dearg summit and ran along most of the ridge until it got too rocky. A good 6ft of snow on top. Ran back down the tourist path
