Trail magazine and the British Mountaineering Council present Britain's Mountain Challenges.
In this video, featuring some incredible aerial footage of some breathtaking mountain scenery, we tackle the 'best walkers' route up Britain's highest peak' - the CMD Arête on Ben Nevis. Linking The Ben to its neighbour Carn Mor Dearg (the peak that gives the arête its name), the arête is narrow enough to be exciting, but wide enough to be within the limits of most competent hillwalkers. As the video shows, it's possible to make the traverse of the ridge as thrilling or as gentle as you like, depending on whether you like a nervy scramble with plenty of air around you, or a more relaxed walk with incredible scenery as your backdrop.
However you tackle the route, it's a big mountain day. As you might expect from a climb that finishes atop the highest peak in the country, there's a lot of ascent involved, and burning leg muscles are very much part and parcel of the journey. But with the unrivalled views of Ben Nevis - and it's breathtaking North Face specifically - that this route provides, we're pretty sure you'll agree that aching limbs are a price worth paying.
