Another beautiful summers day again! Very warm and clear skies by mid morning today. Sapna & Liam were treated to some fine views of the North Face of Ben Nevis today as we went over the CMD arete. It was quite hazy with the southerly airflow but the views were still impressive. The entire circuit is free of snow now, even the final slopes from the abseil post to the Ben summit is all rock, what a difference from this period last year. Even the summit and plateau area is now becoming bare of snow with this recent heatwave. Forecast is for cooler conditions rest of the week, plenty of snow still in the easy gullies on The Ben so maybe a freeze will give a last taste of winter-for those who want it.
