New path for Ben Nevis climbers
Bookmark and Share
Those who fancy getting out their climbing rope and a belay device for some adventurous winter climbing in the Scottish Highlands may be keen to use a new path up to the north face of Ben Nevis.

Local conservation and mountain maintenance group the Nevis Partnership has opened a new, completed path stretching five miles from the Torlundy Car Park to the start of the Allt a' Mhuilin path.

Opening the path, mountain writer and broadcaster Cameron McNeish said access to the face was now much easier for climbers.

"The path has been opened just in time for what will, hopefully, be a great season for Scotland's winter climbers," he remarked.

The north face of Ben Nevis offers many routes to climbers, with popular ascents including the Tower Ridge, Point Five Gully, Zero Gully and the Orion Face.

Walkers tend to use the tourist route or the Carn Mor Dearg arete route, which takes its name from the neighbouring Munro at the other end of the narrow ridge.
