ron1954 30 Jul 2nd Guided by Dave Buckett, Highland Mountain Co. Fraser and me. As for the 7 June 2019 climb with Greg. Just under 4 hours from gearing up to topping out. Fantastic route, some moves that needed a bit of thought (but easier this second time) : interesting all the way. Dry, sunny, no wind, some midges most of the way up. Great, clear views of the rest of the North Face on the way up, and, from the summit, great clear views of the Mamores, and far beyond. Descended by Ledge Route.

ron1954 7 Jun 2nd Greg & I, guided by Dave Buckett, Highland Mountain Co. Dave led three 50m pitches together from the start, then a couple of shorter pitches when needed higher up : otherwise moving together, or Dave solo'd ahead, protecting me and Greg with the rope. Sunny day, no wind, dry rock. Done in approach shoes. 3h40 from gearing up to topping out. Great route. Super enjoyable climbing, full of interest the entire way. Just a brilliant day out. Walked down by Coire Leis. Interesting geology lesson from Dave on the walk down (volcanic ash / mudstone / red granite in clearly defined layers). Top day!

Never felt too hard, but often rather worrying... No problems with snow patches currently - short easy snow to exit, but didn’t really need ice axes, and avoidable by exiting further left.

The top half of the route was more difficult than expected from various guide book descriptions, ground I thought we might scramble we ended up pitching. This along with a few parties which set off at the same time of us meant it took (significantly!!) longer than we expected. Down ledge route and to the CIC hut in dusk then the dark.

Potsy 12 Aug, 2017 AltLd Started moving together but heavy rain and slippy conditions led to having to pitch most of the ridge, still moving together on the easier terrain. It was my first time on top of Ben Nevis and when decending via CMD we found a family lost at 8:30pm on the arete with an hour of daylight and they were panicking. We helped them down via CMD in the dark with just our 2 head torches. They were exhausted and struggling and needed assistance which took a fair while, 3am back to the car...very long day!

nick everett 2 Aug, 2014 Solo Mad culmination of 3-year solo campaign up the big Ben ridges. Nearly whole grade harder than NE Buttress (excepting the avoidable Mantrap). 6am start in Glen Nevis to beat incoming front. Excellent crux corner/crack done with a rush of blood to the head. With a rope I'd definitely go direct at the steep 'tower'- scurried round to the looser RH grooves instead. Just above them, a fridge-freezer-sized block right beside me leapt off into the gully, I'd not touched it but assume something I'd used loosened it. Deep breaths. Then buzzed twice by Coastguard helicopter - waiting for the next block to get me? - more deep breaths. Then drizzle came on and sprinkled seriousness on the mossy, wonderful, endless, loose, scrambly top half. Big morning, superb route.

Humpty Dangler 25 May, 2008 Solo O/S Jordan, Jess and I did this moving together wearing walking boots, which made the VDiff more interesting. Amazing location, superb rock. Terrific views. Topping out on the summit plateau on a cloudless blue sky day was amazing.
