Self reliance is a fundamental principle of mountaineering. By participating we accept this and take responsibility for the decisions we make. These Conditions Reports are intended to help you make good decisions. They do not remove the need for you to make your own judgements when out in the hills.

Slightly different conditions on Ben Nevis today compared with yesterday! Warm and damp this morning, warm and very wet this afternoon. Lots of melting was going on and, although we tried valiantly to climb some steep ice, it was not to be. Mark and I did some nice little steps up the ground taken by Faulty Towers before retreating as fast as possible!

The good news is that we will have cold conditions for the coming week, very cold in fact at the end of the week by the look of it. As we all know, to make ice you need water and there is certainly lots of water around now.
