Skye ridge munros

Jun 04, 2016

Amazing weather on the Skye Cuillin ridge this week. Lots of folk doing big days and traverses. I was with the ladies from Londons Ibex mountaineering club, we had the challenge of doing all the cuillin munros by interesting routes. It all went fine and the girls coped well with the exposure and technicalities of Skyes ridge scrambling. Lots of teams on cuillin ridge traverses as the weather was perfect for this.

The cameras are out on Alaisdair. (This was to be a theme!)
