Nevis Five Ridges Record

15th August 2016

A classic mountaineering link-up I have wanted to do for years, but never gotten around to (I've done each ridge several times, but never linked them together).

Really very enjoyable - such a lot of climbing!
Enjoyed on a lovely afternoon in August

From North Face Car Park
- up North East Buttress (standard route traversing in from the left to above First Platform)
- down Tower Ridge
- up Observatory Ridge
- down Ledge Route
- up Castle Ridge
- return to North Face Car Park

c. 2091m ascent
V. Diff climbing standard
