I have just enjoyed my last two days of work on Skye until the end of August. Thankfully there was a break in the weather and everyone experienced what the Cuillin Ridge can be like when its dry and clear.
Yesterday I was joined by Jens, Kirsten and Niklas; a family visiting from Germany. Our team tackled An Stac, the Inn Pinn, Sgurr na Banachdaich and Sgurr a’ Ghreadaidh all in good style sporting broad smiles the whole way. Its always a relief when foreign climbers visit the island during a spell of good weather as its really enjoyable showing off one of our prized mountaineering challenges rather than being beaten by driving rain. The team really seemed to enjoy their time on Skye, fingers crossed they have more good luck with the weather when they visit Lochaber next week!
Monday was another quality day; being able to guide the Clach Glas / Blabeinn Traverse with the addition of Sgurr an Each which doesn’t happen to often for me. Its a great route, one of the best on Skye with continuous scrambling and spectacular views. Elinor, Anna and Ally all enjoyed the challenge making the post scramble beer taste all that bit sweeter.
