Its not quite Mount Washington, but it might be the biggest little mountain I've ever climbed. Starting near sea level you climb nearly all of the 4,409 feet to the summit. Despite the low elevations Scotland's peaks look like they could easily be in the Alps or Rockies. Low tree lines, glacier carved faces and lingering snow create a dramatic landscape.
I climbed to the summit of Ben Nevis on May 25th with great weather conditions. Just me and about 1,000 of my closest friends made the trek to the top. Thankfully, I beat most of them, making the 4.5 mile and 4,300 foot climb to the summit in two and half hours. I counted over 700 people still climbing up on my way down.
