Ben Nevis by the Carn Mor Dearg Arete
For experienced, fit mountain walkers who do not mind easy scrambling but are not climbers, this is the finest way to climb Ben Nevis. This is a truly spectacular route incorporating two Munros. It will live long in the memory and does true justice to the mountain.
Good mountain paths for much of the route; pathless section on descent with burn crossing. The traverse of the arete is a long but easy scramble.
None to start; buses pass Torlundy.
North Face car park, near Torlundy.
