Successful Ridge Traverse

Lovely day to be on the ridge

It all worked out, this time Neil and Wallace got to celebrate their success on the Cuillin Ridge Traverse.  We had perfect weather on the first day making good progress and ticking off 6 Munro's on the first day in sunshine and light winds.  Our bivi was one of the better one's, chilly but dry with lots of grub to keep our energy levels up.  Day two was also nice, threat of rain was around us but never really developed.  The clouds dropped down in the early afternoon but fortunately we were in the pub.  The 5am start was worth it.

This traverse marks the end of this stint of work on Skye (back next month) so now back over to Fort William for some work on Ben Nevis.
Nearly there
Not a bad day
