The Cuillin of Skye

For the past three days I have been on Skye with the Falkirk High Tops Team.  We have been climbing together on the Island for about six years so now tend to search out more unusal scrambles and tops.

On Friday we climbed the WSW Flank of Sgurr nan Eag.  This grade 2/3 scramble is mostly on good rock.  However, belays are hard to find. We continued the day by traversing Sgurr Alasdair and descending the Great Stone Shoot.

Yesterday, we climbed the NE Ridge of Sgurr a Bhasteir before continuing the day by climbing the West Ridge of Sgurr nan Gillean to the summit and descending the East Ridge to return to Sligachan.

Today we visited the the Red Cuillin and climbed the North Buttress of Sgurr nan Each.  This grade 2/3 scramble was first climed by Harold Raeburn and gives a good route on mostly good rock.
