Join us for a guided ascent of Tower Ridge, highly regarded as the finest mountaineering route in the country, with its length, technicality and exposure make this ridge feel more Alpine in nature. From walking in towards the CIC Hut, you start to realise why it's called Tower Ridge! It dominates the view all the way to the summit of Ben Nevis. A great day out with one of our guides who will make this a very memorable day in the mountains.
