With the forecast we decided to get stuck into our Cuillin Ridge Traverse (VD)**** right away. We teamed up with my good friend Andy and his client for a sociable traverse and a great bivi. We opted for the boat in from Elgol and Sean and I climbed all the Munro's on the main ridgeline as well as all the technical climbs except Naismith's on Am Basteir. Success all round and a great stint in the North-West.

|Late evening before the bivi, a great time to be scrambling|
Our first day we started off on Tower Ridge (D)**** which we shared with Max and his clients. From the summit we descended Ledge Route (Grade 2)**** ticking off two of the classic Ben Nevis Ridges. I wonder when we will complete them all?
For a change of scenery, Sean and I headed to Glencoe for some more scrambling. As the weather was a little mixed we opted for scrambling rather than climbing, Agag's can wait. Instead we climbed up Broad Buttress (Grade 3)*** and descended Great Gully Buttress (grade 1/2)* for a nice round of continuous scrambling and an opportunity for Sean to do a spot of leading.
