Ascent Trip Report

On our only consistently sunny day in a week in Scotland, we got very lucky. We climbed Ben Nevis with what seemed like half of Britain who had the same idea; it was like a slow procession moving up the mountain. With so many people, way-finding was easy, and the only tricky bit was finding an isolated place on the summit for lunch. No matter, it was a great hike and a fun introduction to climbing for seven-year old son.
