On reaching the peak, there’s time for a victory photo and a quick breather before your descent to the northwest via the more gradual Llanberis Path, finishing in Llanberis itself.

The grand finale of the day will see you paddling around Llyn Padarn, completing a large circuit of the lake, to smash through the finish line and celebrate with a glass of bubbles with your fellow teammates. Challenge complete! All being well, you should finish around 4.00pm – 5.00pm

Accompanied by your Mountain Leader the trek begins from Glen Nevis and follows The Mountain Track which is in fact the old access route to the now ruined Observatory and was designed as a rough bridle path for ponies. The track climbs steeply via several small zig-zags to the saddle by Lochan Meall an t-Suidhe (known as the halfway lochan) at 570m, then ascends the remaining 700 metres up the stony west flank of Ben Nevis in a series of larger, but less steep, zig-zags that criss-cross the face of the mountain’s western side leading to the rocky summit plateau. The trek to the summit takes approximately 4 hours and involves 1,370m of ascent. Whilst standing on the highest point in the UK, the sense of achievement is huge as you take in the awe-inspiring views of the Scottish Highlands. There’s time for a photo snap of your epic achievement before the descent taking approximately 2.5 hours. All being well your challenge should be completed by 6pm.
