A bit of a change in the weather the last couple of days, temperatures dropping and rain, what a difference from the recent heatwave. Today Matthias and Susanah were out with me on Ben Nevis, by the CMD arete. They are over from Germany and finished the West Highland Way yesterday (including Ben Lomond on their rest day). So fit and strong we whizzed around the route. Unfortunately we had constant light rain/drizzle from 10am till 4pm, including some sleet over the arete. Only late in the day did it dry up and the cloud lifted, you can't beat 'em all I guess.
