Climbing Ben Nevis via Tower Ridge in September 2009. Perfect weather and sunset at the summit. You get an idea of the scale of the north face of Ben Nevis when you see the climbers on Observatory Ridge at 6:55 - 7:05

  • Absolutely beautiful. Been up the Ben three times, all by the tourist track, once with my dad, once on an old rigid Trek and finally a dozen of us pushing, pulling and hauling our paralysed mate up and back in a tricycle 'wheelchair'. Now I need a knee replacement to go again, always fancied Tower Ridge. Thanks for letting me follow you up by proxy!

  • Andrew, I love your Olive and Mabel videos. So, so funny. We had a black and a yellow Labrador for 13 years. I'm also a climber, too. If you ever get out to Colorado, you'll have a climbing partner, if you need one. Rock on, dude.

  • Took us 8 hours to go up and down, and I did it 2 weeks after ovarian removal surgery. Oo-rah :D

  • @JimboWizbo No bolts - just using slings, nuts, cams. About 2 or 3 pitches where it's wise to rope up. If you climb with somebody experienced it should be fairly straight forward.

  • How did you organise using the ropes? Are there bolts on the way up? (I'm new to climbing!)

  • @bbrianmulhollandd Ta - It was perfect. As it was 2 months later when I did CMD Arete in snow. Very lucky indeed.
