Coire Lagan Round

George getting ready for his round
100 things to do before you die - Climb the Cioch
The Coire Lagan Round is one of my favourite single days on Skye, picking off some of the most iconic pieces of rock and some fantastic sections of climbing.  George's aim was to get to grips with some nice scrambling and also summit a few Munro's so the Round of Coire Lagan seemed logical.  We started up the Sgurmain Stone shoot, ascending under the mighty Cioch and bumped into Jamie and his client for a social-able ascent.  We proceeded onto Sgurr Alasdair, the highest peak of the Cuillin, over some fantastic terrain to traverse along Hart's (Collies) Ledge and up onto Sgurr Micchoinnich.  From hwere we proceeded in beautiful weather to the scramble up onto An Stac and finished our day on the Inaccessible Pinnacle.  The Coire Lagan round never disappoints, if you havent done it then you must get it done.  Including the Cioch is even better.

Been there done that, the skyline we just climbed over.

All done, smiles on the way down
