Very hard ascent in snow yet massively satisfying

Date walked: 02/04/2013

Just finished my 7 hour round trip of Ben more. There is an incredible amount of snow all the way up and down, make sure to have crampons and axe as ice sheets are frequent. Views from the top are unbelievable. Lucky I chose a clear day. Wins chill was around -15 according to forecast. Views from the top are fantastic however getting there in the snow takes up the majority of the hike. Rocky and near 45 degree slopes at points. Highly recommend this for as a wintery challenge.
