Scrambling course on the Skye ridge

Jul 15, 2015

Four days running some scrambling courses in the Skye Cuillins the past few days. Poor weather at the start but it did get better and the midge didn't bother us so thats something. The courses were all about teaching folk scrambling techniques and enabling them to progress and be self reliant.

Got onto the Skye ridge a couple of times and did some great routes including:

Cioch slab and corner and collies route / Tuppeny buttress and then traverse of Bidean Drum / An Diallad buttress and then up to Ghreadaidh and traversed its tops / Slab buttress in Ghrunnda.

A direct belay on the Cioch, Skye cuillins.
