Skye Cuillin Traverse

Rob and Rich had been looking forward to their attempt on the traverse for some time, and although with quite a lot of experience in some of the high place of the world, the reputation of the route did give rise to some trepidation. So it was with a real sense of adventure that we started out early on Thursday morning from Glenbrittle, luckily the weather held until after the Tearlaich Dubh Gap and we reached our pre-stocked camp without suffering too much from the sleety showers. The dawn mist evaporated quickly on Friday to give us a splendid day to complete the ridge, with stunning views in all directions. With tired legs it was with a sense of relief and accomplishment that the summit and Sgurr Nan Gillean was finally reached and our whole route was visible behind us and the beckoning pub laid out before us - It was a memorable experience for us all - so thanks and well done guys !
