Skye Cuillin

After having a week on The Black Cuillin of Skye wilting under an unmerciful sun in July,
August's dark and rainswept days no longer surprise me - the variability of the British weather !
A couple of days scrambling on the North Ridge of Tryfan and Bristly Ridge in misty conditions reminded me that familiarity can lead to complacency - with at least one rocky gendarme climbed needlessly !
This was a timely warning as an unexpected ( unprepared ) trip to Mont Blanc on the 15th Sept. is planned - healthy eating , early morning jogs and a few pull-ups on the door frame are the order of the day for the next 2 weeks.
