Ben Nevis again for a change. Five ladies on a 3 peaks challange today, so we set off early and were rewarded with a very quiet hill, wonderfully peaceful and summit to ourselves. It was a dry, sunny day but cold on the upper slopes. We came across the 'rush hour' on the descent, the hordes were on the way upward. I only had a short ride back home to town in the minibus, thankfully, as there were potent aromas of foot gels, leg rubs, deodourant and whatever else the ladies were splashing on themselves for the next session in the Lake District.
