Today was a better weather day so myself and Pitor headed for the northern peaks of Sgurr nan Gillean and Am Basteir.
We had a dry ascent of Am Basteir via the bad step before going up the west ridge of Sgurr nan Gillean, we then descended the south ridge making for a good traverse of the peak. #skye #Munro #Cuillin
Day 3 of our Skye munros course saw the weather turn for the worse with strong wind and heavy showers.
We opted for the shorter day of ascending An Dorus to Sgurr a Ghreadaith and Sgurr a Mhadaith. With the top of An Dorus more of a waterfall pitch than a scramble we made quick work of both peaks with the wind blowing strong.
Once we started descending the cloud lifted and we had a dry walk out before more heavy showers started for the rest of the afternoon. #skye #Cuilli
Day 2 of our Skye Munros course and we moved along the ridge summiting Sgurr MhicChoinnich, Inaccessible Pinnacle and Sgurr na Banachdaich.
The day started out well with good views and blue sky. However the clouds descended covering the peaks with drizzle starting once we got to the In Pinn. With not too much of a wait the team made light work of the ascent, with a rocky walk to our last munro to complete the day. #skye #Cuillin #Inpinn
Day 1 of our Skye munros course where we headed for the southern 3 munros of Sgurr nan Eag, Sgurr Dubh Mor and Sgurr Alasdair.
The forecast had cloud and sun for most of the day but we got a lot more cloud and mostly falling drizzle which was unexpected.
The guys did well getting round at a good pace with glimpses of the views coming and going. #skye #Munros #Cuillin
Last day for me on the Skye munros in the sun. Today was the middle 2 of Sgurr a Mhadaidh and Ghreadaidh.
Another warm day walking in and more spectacular views of the Skye ridge. The team are doing well ticking off the peaks with just 3 left tomorrow. #skye #Munros #Cuillin
Today i was on the Inaccessible Pinnacle, Sgurr MhicChoinnich and Sgurr na Banachdaich on Skye.
Another very hot day and a hot walk into Corrie Laggan. The streams are really starting to dry up now above the main rivers.
The team did well in the heat and enjoyed the In Pinn with time on the summit for views all around before the abseil. #skye #Cuillin #Mountaineering #Munro
Day 3 on Costa del Skye with Ian. Today we had a bit of a shorter day on Sgurr a Ghreadaidh and Sgurr a Mhadaidh.
Walking up to An Dorus, the lowest point on the ridge, is one of my favourites along the river, and we weren’t let down today.
More stunning views from the peaks as well. #munro #Skye #Isleofskye #Cuillin
The Inaccessible Pinnacle was the 1st goal today. After a hot walk up we ended up having it to ourselves.
After lunch with a view, we headed across to Sgurr MhicChoinnich before descending. Another scorcher day on Skye. #skye #Munros #Cuillin #Innpinn
