Bad step airy scramble near summit
Take a look at my trip report for this walk
Its technically not difficult (moderate or diff) but the exposure is immense.
We'll be oop that way soon
Last time (and only time) we climbed Ben Hope it was by the tourist route in really nasty weather and we didn't see a thing. If we get a good day that route looks like a much better alternative.
Never been up the North Ridge, always climbed up from the west onto the south ridge.
Here is my last trip report back in 2005 together with a few photos.
The most memorable report of this route I've seen was here:
Evening ascent with inversion
It’s not all hill walking and Kendal mint cake
Information on maintenance and insurance for vans from The Van Insurer
