26th - 28th January Ben Nevis CIC Hut Trip

Hey all. This is the first post winter-skills trip, taking place the very next weekend after the course. We'll be staying in the CIC hut on Ben Nevis on Saturday night, and likely a hostel/Airbnb on the Friday. The CIC gives unprecedented access to the North Face of the Ben with literally hundreds of routes visible from the hut. It's the UK's only real Alpine hut, located at 680m, and is extremely popular - it's fully booked throughout the whole of February and March, as well as a lot of January and April. It costs £15 per night so is actually cheaper than a hostel. Trip fees should be about £50.
