I hope the photos capture something of the two exillarating days....enjoy!
Mon 10th Ben Nevis - 0830 start and 1600 finish
As if the above conditions weren't good enough, Tuesday 11th proved to be every bit as good with absolutely no wind - 0900 start and 1630 finish
Weary, exhausted but exhilarated, I returned to the youth hostel and those few of us present, shared our amazement at the good fortune we had over the previous two days. Alas, Wednesday saw a return home but plenty of memories, not least Ben Nevis How many get to see the summit on a day like that....or get to see anything on the summit at all

I tried not to be too smug, BoyV, but it wasn't easy
As for the stoneage type structure, Tomyboy, I haven't a clue what it is. Do any of you locals have any idea? While we're at it, how do you get into the emergency shelter when it's in that condition?
Not one of my best poses Tomsie. I got a bit carried away, what with the ice axe being a new purchase
Believe it or not, after nearly 50 summits this year, Mon and Tue were the first that gave any decent views at all. Just when you think it will never happen, you get your reward for the days in the mist and clag
