First time on this route. From the North Face car park, through the bog and up to Carn Mor Dearg. A blast of rain and cloud along the way. Clear over the arete until the halfway point when cloud came in and stayed cloudy up to the summit. Tough route, definitely need to work on my hill fitness.

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
