Ben Nevis - Heavy snow atop [BIG IMAGES] + More soon

Recommended Posts

Climbed it a few times before, this time was mainly snowed in heavily the last kilometer or so. Forgot my crampons, so that was annoying.

 

Hopefully in summer I will do a night summit.

 

 

 

Sorry for the bad quality, phone sucks. :roll:

 

 

 

(Does anybody know the estimated costs for Kilimanjaro? I want to attempt it in the near future.)

How long did it take? Is it difficult to climb?

For the average person it is normally 7-8 hours in good weather. I managed 7 although the slow did slow me down considerably.

 

 

 

As for the difficultly, many people do it. As long as you are reasonably fit and well prepared, go for it.

Are you interested into climbing bigger tougher mountains as time goes on? Or was this just for fun?

climbed it easter weekend, was brilliant. complete white-out on top so couldnt see much. did it pretty much spot on 6 hours. I nearly burnt out just before the top and had to really push myself. It wasn't particularly hard but I'm just too unfit and was a wee bit hung over.

thats the best thing ive found so far - get sponsered around 2 grand, 1k for costs and 1k for charity. is brilliant that you to spend a day with the kids the money is going to aswell. would be hard to get the money raised though.
