North East Buttress

 

Pre-requisites

You should have a good level of fitness to do this route with previous scrambling and hillwalking recommended. You will need to have done some rock climbing before, preferably some outside or indoor climbing at around F5+ and above. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your experience and aspirations.

It is worth noting that this climb is not possible in all conditions and a fairly settled, dry spell of weather is recommended.

A natural step up from Tower Ridge this route takes the striking line on the dominating ridge of the North Face of Ben Nevis. It is graded a Very Difficult rock climb and consists of mixture of some pitches of rock climbing interspersed  by easier mountaineering ground. There are several iconic pitches on this route including the infamous Mantrap, an awkward but short overhanging step on the ridge and the magnificant 40 foot corner. The route tops out very close to the summit of the mountain ,giving a superb way to climb Ben Nevi as well as a highly enjoyable classic climb!
