Slept in van in North Face car park. Walked into CIC Hut. Looked at number 4 gully but avalanche risk was too high. So carried on up to Coire Leis and climbed onto CMD Arete. The snow was deep and from CIC Hut to the shoulder was really hard work breaking trail through thigh deep snow. Once on the arete we summited the Ben. Walked off down zig zag path to Red Tarn then down to North face car park in the dark.

After Tower Ridge to make the most of the blue skies. Really good.

PPP 05/Jan/16 Solo

Easy going all the way, just quite windy! Wouldn't consider to be a proper climb IMHO, more like a challenging winter walk along the ridge. The top bit in full-on Scottish winter conditions made it slightly worse, but the snow slope isn't that steep anyway. A nice day when you finish the route next to a summit shelter. First Ben ascent, too.

Cable car upto 600 meters then into the snow! pretty breezy and avalanche conditions considerable/high although looking at the conditions there it was not that bad. the ridge route was pretty busy (20 people on it!) but its a stunning route to do! last pull upto Ben summit took it out of several of the group - sun and reasonably calm conditions on the summit, lonnnng drag back through the forest once off the mountain. Deffo must come back and do this again!

Hard to think of a better way to spend New Years day. Good weather was mostly had. I did vote for bailing at one point but fortunately Burncool and Drop Out are made of sterner stuff.

getting up to it from Coire Leis was hard work! Went to Carn mor Dearg rather than up to Ben Nevis.
