North East Buttress on Ben Nevis is a challenging day out with some great climbing and exposed positions. It is considered a Ben Nevis Classic and is one of Ben Nevis' Great Ridges. North East Buttress is a good next step for those people that have done Tower ridge.
The famous crux sections of North East Buttress are the 'The Mantrap' and 'The Forty-foot corner' Both of these are high on the route and although they are definitely a little trickier than Tower Ridge they are short-lived. North East Buttress is accessed via a traverse onto the First platform or alternatively via Reaburns arete which is harder again but gives a great day out of over 500m of Rock Climbing.
We offer to guide on this route in both Summer and Winter conditions with prices starting at £220. Kit hire is available for both Summer and Winter bookings.
