Best way up the Ben Review by Julian
Overall Experience
I hiked this route with a group of 7 hikers on June 2nd, and our group leader, Spike. Given the unsettled weather forecast, the walk was brought forward a couple of hours, at short notice. We all met at the North Face Car Park at 7am and had a short briefing with Spike. As we began the hike, he mingled and established our previous mountain experiences. He also ensured we set an appropriate pace and were hydrated sufficiently well throughout. As we ascended Carn Mor Dearg, the group began climbing at different rates, but Spike managed the whole group so we all met up at the summit and had enough time to rest before the next stage. He gave clear instructions of what we could expect, along with information about potential abort routes in case the hike had to be abandoned. We progressed along the arete as a group, and Spike provided excellent guidance so everyone felt at ease and completed the route promptly. My confidence on the arete certainly improved as we progressed.
The final ascent to the summit was done as a group, and we reached the triangulation point ahead of the bad weather. Spike ensured that we had time for obligatory photos and had cleared the summit plateau before the time that the bad weather was forecast. We then progressed at a more leisurely pace down the tourist track then diverted back to the North Face Car Park, arriving back 11 hours after starting. This is the second hike that Ive done with this company and it was every bit as enjoyable and successful as before. I shall definitely be doing more hikes with them in future. Thanks for a memorable and enjoyable day with a great crowd (Posted on 08/06/2018)
Fantastic quiet route Review by Tom
Overall Experience
Although my first trip up Ben Nevis, this must be one of the best routes to take, the numbers of people on the summit was somewhat of a surprise as we saw very few on the ascent. Great weather, great company and a big thank you to our fantastic professional guide Sally. (Posted on 27/06/2016)
