Mountaineering CIC Trip
This classic outing takes in the East Ridge of Carn Dearg Meadhonach (II), Carn Mor Dearg Arête (I), Ledge Route Traverse (II); some of the best Mountaineering ground in Scotland. We will start the trip at the Nevis range gondola (fare not included) and traverse the three ridges to finish in glen Nevis.
Day 1 – Traverse from the top of the Gondola around into the Allt Daim corrie. From here we ascend the East Ridge of Carn Dearg Meadhonach (Grade II). This long pinnacle ridge takes us to the summit of Carn Mor Dearg. From the summit we follow the CMD Arête before dropping down corrie Leis to the CIC Hut.
Day 2 – Ledge route. This is one of the five great ridges of the Ben and the best route of its grade on the mountain. From the top of the route we head down to Glen Nevis.
