Service Description

Carn Mor Dearg Arete. The Carn Mor Dearg arête, often referred to as the “CMD” is possibly one of Ben Nevis’s finest mountain journeys (arguably Scotland’s!). In good clear conditions offering expansive views of the North Face of Ben Nevis and an airy view of the Glen’s below. The CMD arête is classed as a grade 1 scramble and requires good fitness and some scrambling or rock climbing experience. This route is a fair bit harder than the “Mountain Path” and therefore shouldn’t be confused; however for the right party this is a wonderful adventure! Summer Walking Checklist.
