Sgurr nan Gillean and An Basteir, Skye

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 pinnacles on the west ridge of Sgurr nan Gillean with ease before making it to the summit.
