Over the last 2 days i have been out with Pitor on the Skye Cuillin ridge.
We haven’t had the best of weather but we have managed to get in some classic scrambling.
Yesterday in the wind and rain we walked up to An Dours and got the peaks of Sgurr a Mhadaidh and Sgurr a Ghreadaidh. We then kept on the ridge and did some great grade 3 scrambling to take us onto the munro of Sgurr a Banachdaich.
Today with a colder but improving forecast we headed into Sgurr dubh mor and Sg
With a favourable forecast I headed on to Sgurr nan Gillean and Am Basteir with Shaun and Ben.
They had been out the last 2 days on Skye being guided up the In Pinn, Sgurr MhicChoinnich, Sgurr na Banachdaich and Sgurr a Ghreadaidh, all in strong wind, rain and cloud. So they were glad today to get views from the tops and only a few showers.
We made good progress into the corie and then onto the slippery Am Basteir over the bad step. The guys then tackled the crazy pinna
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 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
A busy day in Glen Coe today for The Highland Mountain Company.
I was along the Aonach Eagach on a showery and windy ridge.
Dave A and Casper were with Finin and her family and friends on their 1st day of 3 in Scotland walking up Stob Corie nan Lochan and reported better weather and views on the classic peak.
Elsewhere, Andrew was out with Gareth on the 2 munros of Buachaille Etive Mor. Aonach Eagach Buachaille Etive Mor Stob corie nan Lochan #glencoe #Munros #Aonacheag
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
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
Myself and Andrew walked up the 2 Buachaille Etive Mor munros: Stob Dearg and Stob na Broige. There was a lot of fresh snow falling all day and temperatures were a little warmer than yesterday with the cloud cover. Coire na Tulaich was mostly free from snow with a light dusting. We descending down to the Lairig Gartain taking a wide burth to avoid the dodgy slab. 2nd munro 1 st munro Corie na Tulaich #glencoe #Munros #Winter #Walking
