Home again, stronger (?) and with a great adventure behind us.
#2018 #ben nevis #skottland
Tired, hungry and happy back in Fort William
Måns takes the jump
Behind us we see part of the ridge we climbed and Ben Nevis peak still in the clouds
One last pit stop and some warm hiking food
Under the clouds the views are stunning
We pass the lake Lochan Meall an t-suidhe acompanied by sheep
The descent is along the Mountain track on the west side but soon we will divert from this path to reach back to our starting point
Let´s go down!
Celebration is in the tradition of Captain Haddock with Scotch Whiskey Loch Lomond!
Lunch on top
200 m of scrambling leads us to the summit of Ben Nevis at 1345 m - a rather gloomy place with a cairn and some ruins
For a short while the clouds clear slightly and we can see the ridge we just passed. Do you spot the lonely hiker?
We have now passed the ridge and take a short pause around noon at the cairn at 1150 m, before the final ascent.
Snow starts to fall and the wind picks up.
