Bruce on Sgurr nan Gillean at the end of a Skye Ridge Traverse

Skye Ridge Traverse

Just back from a great weekend on Skye. Bruce has wanted to do the Skye Ridge for sometime but for many of his visits to Skye with me we've had generally rubbish weather. Finally this weekend it was dry and clear and we were ready for action!

We stashed some bivi gear high on the ridge while doing a climb on Midget Ridge and discovering how much snow there really was from last weeks late winter storm. There was plenty! The wind was constant for all of the traverse with the temperature not getting above 4 degrees on day one and even though we had some sun at the end of day 2 we never had double figures celcius.

Great to finally do this big mountaineering adventure with Bruce. There are some photos from the weekend on my Facebook Page: Skye Ridge Traverse Facebook photo album
