Skye Ridge Traverse

I have just spent the last two days on the Skye Ridge with Katy. We had fantastic weather, couldn't ask for anything better. It took us 9 hours from the car to the bivi and another 9 hours from the bivi back to the other car. All the climbing was bone dry and really great fun. We had a fantastic bivi below the 3 teeth of Sgurr Thormaid where we had front row seats of a beautiful sunset and sunrise. We summited all of the 11 munros on the ridge as well as doing all the tricky climbing sections, TD gap, Kings chimney, Bhastier Tooth etc. There are many great options for ticking off all the munros and getting a taste of mountaineering on Skye but doing it over two days is a great achievement and experience.
