Inaccessible Pinnacle

Today was all about climbing another iconic piece of rock. This time I was out with Al and James and they wanted to climb the Inaccessible Pinnacle, followed by some exciting ridge walking. As usual the Inaccessible Pinnacle went with no problems. We had one team ahead of them but gave them plenty of space. We all abseiled off the Pinn and made our way along the fantastic ridge leading to Sgurr na Banadich. From the summit we descended down Sgurr nan Gebhar ridge. I have never done this and it was absolutely fantastic. It looks great from a distance and it really is great to descend. Because it is off the main ridge and isn't as popular as other sections, it is a wee bit green and slimy. Other than that, its brilliant. We headed due west off the final peak which was pretty steady to get down and lead to a great wee scree run. Another brilliant day learning a new part of the Cuillin.  For the last wee while I have been working for Skye Guides.
