Video: The Ben Nevis Ledge Route Captured by Drone

At 1344 meters (4409 ft) in height, Ben Nevis is the tallest mountain in the British Isles. While that doesn’t sound like a daunting altitude, as you’ll see in this video Ben Nevis is a significant climbing challenge none the less. It was shot along the Ledge Route using a DJI Phantom drone to capture the spectacular footage. The results are dramatic and eye opening, with some incredibly beautiful shots of a mountain that holds legendary status in the British climbing community. Even more impressive, this footage was shot just last Friday, and is a great demonstration of what filmmakers can do with the tools at their disposal today.
