Well done to Josh, Ben, Adam and Kersha who all made the long trek up Ben Nevis today in aid of Help For Heroes. They all worked extremely hard and earned every penny they have raised.  

It was a brilliant day with non-stop sunshine. It was hot in the glen and even hotter on the snow with the reflected heat. The snow cover is still extensive and deep. From Corner 6 at 1100m there is almost continuous snow cover all the way top the summit where it is 2m deep. Tower Ridge is just about clear of snow though and it had a few ascents today.
