Ben Nevis, CIC Hut, 6 Day Guided Winter Climb

Ben Nevis, CIC Hut, 6 Day Guided Winter Climb | undefined

MIC certified guide Ken wants to guide you for 5 exciting days, with 5 exciting nights in a CIC hut, on a climbing course on the cliffs on and around Ben Nevis in Scotland.

6 Days

Feb, Mar

High

Intermediate


Description

Over the course of 6 exciting days, I would like to guide you on several climbs around the amazing Ben Nevis mountain (1,345m), while staying in the highest mountain hut in the country, the warm and comfortable CIC hut (680m).

Because this trip takes place in the winter, the conditions will be harsh. There will be a lot of snow, ice, and wind. As a result, the various climbs we will go on will be challenging. Thus why participants on this trip should have previous climbing experience, and be in good physical condition.

However, I believe the difficulties that come with the weather conditions is what makes this trip so thrilling because it is the kind of trip you not only enjoy, but conquer. And afterwards, you will get to fondly look back on it with a sense of pride at what you have accomplished.

Due to the perfect location of the CIC hut, we will have access to an an array of different climbing routes that we can take each day. Each route is unique, and will present its own set of challenges and highlights. But one thing every route has in common is the spectacular views they offer of the expansive and stunning landscape of the unforgettable Scottish highlands. Some examples of the possible routes include Smith’s route, Green Gully, the Curtain, Point five gully, Tower ridge, Minus Gullies, and many, many more.

So if you are looking to push yourself and climb through some fierce winds and dense snow, send me a request and join me for 6 days climbing around Ben Nevis, where you can enjoy the comforts of the CIC hut, and stand high above the entire United Kingdom.

I can also lead you on this 1 day winter climb of Ben Nevis as well.

Ken immediately made us feel welcomed and we had a good chat on the walk in before gearing up for the ridge ascent. Both my son and I had a fantastic experience thanks to Ken's calm, expertise in leading us over Tower Ridge and then descending via Ledge Ridge to round off a great day. Highly recommended!

Ken took me and my son up the north face ledge route to the top of Ben Nevis. It was a challenge in places - particularly with the snow and ice - but it was an unforgettable experience! Ken was a great guide.

I usually do these things with my Husband, but we currently live in Singapore and I’m back visiting family and didn’t want to miss out. I was doubly anxious because our usual guide was unavailable, but Ken quickly put me at ease. For me that’s about feeling like I have all the information I need, being reassured that I’m making good time and having a few scheduled breaks for snacks etc. We also had a good chat, which made the walk in fly by. A very enjoyable day, I felt safe and comfortable throughout. I hope to be back in the future for more adventures.
