Week in Skye

Over the last week (Sunday 16th-Thursday 20th) I have been working in Skye. I was working with Jamie B for Bedford schools CCF. We were working with cadets aged 14-19, all with varied backgrounds and experiences. We ventured into the Red Cullins (Beinn Dearg Mhor, Beinn Dearg Mheadhonach, Beinn na Caillich), Storr and spent a wet and wild day below Sgurr Alasdair at Loch Coire Lagan, we even got a view of The Cioch! We spent 4 days with the cadets with one rest day in the middle, so we had a 12 hour day on Pinnacle Ridge on Sgurr nan Gillean (amazing route)! It can be quite a rarity to climb a winter route on Skye so we made the most of the good conditions! Unfortunately I forgot my camera on this day so no pictures of the route. We also stopped off at the White Dyke crag near Kyle of Lochalsh for a spot of soloing and bouldering on the way home! A very busy week! (nice pose Bav!!)
