Tower Ridge gave us a stunning day out yesterday. I took John up and Fiona came along to observe me at work. Campbell took Ben and Kevin along behind us. Despite the awesome weather and the Bank Holiday the North Face of the Ben was almost deserted. Other than us we saw Nick from Alpha Mountaineering out for the day also on Tower Ridge, Mike from Abacus was out on Ledge Route working for Highland Guides . Apart from that I saw party on Raeburns Arete and that was it (really surprising given the number of dry routes to go at on Carn Dearg). The summit on the other hand was crawling with people enjoying the great west coast weather.
