Back up on the CMD arete and another beautiful hot day with clear skies. Still a tad hazy but another day of strolling around the mountains in t-shirts. Today I was joined by the fun packed Irish folk on the CMD arete onto Ben Nevis. It was the first visit to Scotland's mountains for Lorraine, Susan, Willie, Jamie and Peter. It was getting a bit busy on Carn Mor Dearg summit so we lingered at the rear and enjoyed the solitude. There was a stiff breeze out today so a very pleasant temperature on the tops today.
