We went the hard route on a poor day ,I must admit that I really struggled with this and suffered for a couple of days after ,but I'm glad that I did it.

Jealous as I've only done the boring way. How exposed is it on the Arete ? 'cause I've not got a head for heights. Saying that I've done some of the serious climbs ie An Teallach, Aonach Eagach & Liathach.

Same. not got a great head for heights myself .As I mentioned in my comment we climbed on a poor day ,so everything was closed in and I didn't feel as though it was that exposed at all ,but I dare say on a half decent day things would be a lot different

Ben Nevis

Had the dubious honour of climbing this mountain 3 times - twice on a 3 peaks challenge ( 06, 09 ) and once on holiday last year ( 09 ).

The problem is that its not that interesting compared to many other finer mountains. I also dropped my hip flask of finest whisky which is why I possibly don;t hold it very dear!

Ben Nevis & Carn Mor Dearg

I to have climbed the Ben Nevis Tourist Route three times and it is a boring slog up the zigg zagged pony track. I'm aware  a great route up it  via carn mor dearg arete which involves a bit of simple scrambling / exposure. I haven't climbed via this route yet but It certainly looks a lot more interesting than the dreaded tourist route.
