Maundy Thursday on Ben Nevis

18th April 2019

Its defiantly Spring, with summit temperatures approaching double figures. That said, there was quite a cool wind blowing up at the CIC Hut today.
The snowpack is still there but continuing to slowly thaw. Stability is generally good. Large areas of old snow in many of the main Nevis gullies.

A selection of images from today:

It’s all about bringing the right kit!
