I may go to Scotland for an ascent of Ben Nevis in August and my girlfriend might accompany me. Her fitness level is not so gr8.
In terms of physical effort, which route up the Ben is easiest, the Tourist or via the CMD Arete?
Thanks in advance for any useful advice from experienced parties
I have taken folks up the so callled 'Tourist Route' several times and folks have been surprised how demanding it is. They've taken between 7 and 10 hours there and back. It is not a walk in the park by any means.
However top class runners do the Ben Nevis Hill Run from Fort William in under 90 minutes, that is up an down.
A bit of training is needed for the ascent and that is not a stroll round the block at home as some found to their disadvantage.
Hope you make it.
