Last weeks Cuillin Ridge course












A few photos of Ken, Godfrey, Mark, Karin and Fi from last weeks Cuillin Munros and scrambles course. Karin (ML) again came along to shadow, assist Fi and myself and bag a few Cuillin Munros and climbs. Overall we had several days of superb clear weather along with a few very claggy, wet and blustery days where a cool head, carefull foot and map work were essential.
Total reliance on a GPS is dangerous on the Cuillin' and Mark's trusty Garmen was at times more than 500 metres out on the narrow ridges and steep coires due to weak or obscured satellite signals!!!
Everyone bar one, found the hills, steep, exposed and hard work but very very rewarding at the same time and achieved their ambitions.
As a bonus Godfrey, Ken and I managed to avoid the worst of the twenty plus In Pin queues!!
After the course Fi and I stayed on for a day's sunny rock climbing on the south face of Sgurr Alasdair and would have stayed on longer if the midges hadn't arrived with a vengeance on Saturday evening!! See Fi's blog here for more details.
