My first trip to Ben Nevis and I choose to take the "Tourist Route" as the weather was not great to start with. I had originally intended to go via the CMD arete however the poor visibility put me off. To a certain extent I regret that decision because although I was very pleased to reach the summit there were far too many people about. Weather was much brighter at the summit as it was above the cloud level. Will definitely go back and try a more interesting route.
