Pony Track
CMD Arête

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK. Towering at an impressive 1345m, it dominates everything around it. From the south and west it looks no more than a rounded, scree covered mound, but from the north and east you are greeted by the Ben's towering North Face; a maze of impressive rock faces, ridges, boulder fields and gullies.

Without utilising ropes and climbing shoes, there are really two main ways to ascend the Ben. Either by the popular Pony Track, which takes a meandering route up the west face and requires no hands or a particularly good head for heights; or by the CMD arête, the rocky and at times narrow ridge which connects the summit of Ben Nevis with it's nearest neighbour, Carn Mòr Dearg. This route requires a bit of easy scrambling, and spends a fair amount of time off the beaten track - certainly not for the faint hearted!

Craig Dubh Adventures offers both routes as options in both summer & winter conditions. Click on the links below for detailed route descriptions to help you make an informed choice as to which one suits you best, and as always feel free to contact us if you wish to discuss it further!
