On Foot
Trail: Testing MM Adventurer 2800 GPS on Ben Nevis (3)
Contributor: TZ_Support Activity Type: Hiking Difficulty: Hard Distance: 4.893 mi (7.875 km)
Description: Just to prove we take the outdoors seriously we sent one of our technical managers up Ben Nevis armed with an Adventurer 2800 to navigate to the peak of Britains highest mountain. Despite being one of the hottest days in May, the team reported heavy snow and poor visibility, but the Adventurer delivered them to the summit and safely back down again. The trail up the western side of Ben Nevis starts from the visitor car park near Achintee House (Elevation 15m) and continues right to the summit at 1343m. If you are going to undertake this ascent yourself bear in mind that the length, height gain and terrain make it tough going - so not for the faint hearted! And remember to check the weather locally before you set off...we left the car park in shorts and t-shirts but needed technical outdoor gear at the top to keep warm at the still snowy summit with an added bonus of a significant wind chill factor.
