Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis

Guided scrambling and climbing day on a classic route

We're climbing and scrambling up 'Tower Ridge' on Ben Nevis, probably the most renouned climber's route on the mountain's North Face. The exposure is sensational as we move across the narrow crests and negotiate The Tower and Tower Gap. With challenging rock, and some intricate navigation, having a guide who knows the ridge inside-out is the best way to conquer this route.
