After last weeks tragedy I decided to atempt the climb again in better weather. It was dry and bright but as I approached the top of Ben Nevis I went into the clouds. I was about to leave the summit when the clouds started to clear. I turned around and went back to the summit for some great views through the cloud before returning back into Glen Nevis.
