Evening up the Ben

Last Friday evening I was up the Ben again for a 3 peaks challenge with Maximum Adventure; Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon in 24 hours.  We started from the Ben Nevis Inn at 4.45pm in drizzle with 20 people.  We made good time up to the Red Burn at about 700m and then split into smaller groups, with 2 people behind with another guide.  By 7.45pm we were stood on the summit in the driving drizzle and cloud, which was a theme for the walk.  After a 5 minute break we were heading down, with a faster group getting down by 9.45pm and I was down with the last at 10.15pm.  A very good time of 5 1/2 hours, lets hope they have better weather and some views on the other 2.
