Darth Vader, Ben Nevis & Star Wars

Ben Nevis was in splendid condition and Jon Orr and I headed up the track hoping for the chance to get on a route. We thought the Ben would have been very busy given the weather and conditions and were pleasantly surprised to have free route choice.

Hankering back to Star Wars days we choose Darth Vader VII 7. Three superb pitches and the best belay in the winter climbing world.
We had decided on this route because the winds were a bit more fierce on other faces and this gave quite a bit of shelter.
