Climbing Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis, standing at 1344 meters above sea level, is the highest point in the British Isles. It is estimated that 100,000 people reach the summit each year, the vast majority by the pony track from Glen Nevis.

If, however, you want a much longer but far superior day, you can approach from Torlundy to the north and ascend via the amazing Carn Mor Dearg Arete.

The North side of the mountain has the longest Rock climbs in the UK. The summit can be snow-covered at nearly any point of the year. Any ascent when there is still snow cover may well require winter equipment.
