New climb on Ben Nevis is the hardest yet

News of Lochaber.

Start up an overhang which was never climbed before. Keep going for 600 feet up the front of the Comb Buttress to the top, and then come back and do it next Winter in Snow and Ice. Then you will have done what is reported to be one of the most difficult ice and snow climbs in the world. Dave McLeod did the first ever summer climb of it in 2005, and plans to do the winter climb around now. He should know. He is Scotland’s premier young rock climber. Who would deny that this area is the playground of the world? One person’s play is another’s nightmare mind you.

You can see a great deal of information about climbing, ice climbing and high level walking around the Argyll and Glencoe area at our web site pages starting
