Tristian & me tackled the north face of Ben Nevis. We started out from the North Face car park and headed toward the SIS hut, but then took a detour up the slope towards Carn Beag Dearg. At about 800 meters we stopped to put on the crampons as the snow started to get deep.
We got up to Carn Beg Dearg and then started along the ridge towards Carn Dearg Meadhonach. The snow was ice capped and the wind was picking up.
With the light fading and darkness approaching we decided to head back.
