Skye ridge half traverse

Sep 21, 2016

After a long Summer away, it was back to work with a jolt last week, starting with traversing the Skye Cuillin Ridge.
Paul is an Olympian and an extremley fit chap to boot as you would expect. We had hoped for a one day traverse, but the weather wasn't playing ball so we opted for a half traverse to finish off the parts of the ridge he hadn't done yet.

We went into An Dorus and then along to Gillean, taking in a slightly greasy naismiths route along the way. Seven hours, floor to floor ! safe to say, its the fastest I have ever moved along the Skye Cuillin Ridge with a Client. Well done Paul.
