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

  • Pre-Olive days when you had to resort to hiking with humans? Mungo in a Sombrero? Aren't you ashamed?

    • Ha - no, long time before Mungo. That bullmastiff was my beloved Suilven.

  • I thought Olive was maybe on the camera for much of this, but then I saw the date.

  • 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.
