The Ben Nevis, at 1345m altitude, doesn't speak to many people. Except for the connoisseurs, who want to brave its extraordinary climate and its great mixed routes.
The charm of the refuge at the foot of the face will allow us to spend the nights in the warmth, and to dry the wet things of the day.
