Cioch and more

Today I was out with Bryan and his two son's Alasdair (19) and Gregor (16).  Year's ago Bryan had done the ridge traverse had always had an affinity with Skye.  So much so, he named his eldest son after Skye's highest peak, Sgurr Alasdair.  The plan of the day was to climb The Cioch and onto Sgurr Alasdair so Alasdair could see why Bryan named him after this great peak.  So we made our way onto Cioch Slab which led us nicely onto The Cioch.  From here we traversed into eastern Gully and headed up into the sunshine.  A well worth adventure, if your waist is 36+ then it might be quite tricky, some tight squeezes!  After arriving at Bealach Coire a' Ghrunnda we headed up onto Sgurr Sgumain then finally onto Sgurr Alasdair.  We made a speedy descent down the Great Stone Shoot into Coire Lagan.  Today I was working for Skye Guides.
