Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in Britain, rising 1,344 metres (4,406 ft) above sea level around the hills and Monroes of the Scottish Highlands. The route up and down Ben Nevis is about nine miles in total and we will be climbing via the ‘Mountain Track’ or the ‘Tourist Track’. Details of the walk can be found here
The normal time taken to climb to the top by the tourist path is three and a half to five hours – coming down is much faster, between one and a half to two and a half hours.
Although this is a physically challenging event, it will be a hugely rewarding personal experience that we would like you to be a part of. Everyone should attempt to conquer Ben Nevis at least once in their lifetime!!.
Last year, Ben Nevis Rocks raised over £25,000 which will be going to cancer projects in the Scottish Highlands area and towards our new ‘Get On the List’ campaign, which will be recruiting bone marrow donors to the register using the swab techinique. Last year, over 150 trekkers climbed Ben Nevis and were rewarded by a very moving performance at the summit, where Mike read a list of those people that had been lost to cancer and those who were currently receiving treatment.
