Skye Munros Course - Days 3 & 4

Skye Munros Course – Days 3 & 4

Two more days, six more Munros bagged. Yesterday, with tired legs and various niggles, we were a slightly denuded team. A fresh dusting of snow blanketed much of the Cuillins first thing in the morning, but with it being another clear day, much of it melted fairly quickly. We made ascents of Sgurr Nan Eag, Sgurr Dubh Mor and Sgurr Alasdair, before descending the Great Stone Chute, which was still holding a far bit of snow on its upper reaches.

Today, we were back to a full compliment and had a great day on the northern three Munros. We made an ascent of Sgurr Nan Gillean via its West Ridge, before traversing Am Bastier and abseiled down the atmospheric King's Cave Chimney. An easy ascent of Bruach na Frithe marked the final summit of the day and the eleventh Munro of the week. Skye wouldn't be Skye if we didn't have to don our waterproof jackets for even just a short time and whilst it was snowing lightly up high, we soon hit the freezing level on our descent.

It's been a great four days, with largely excellent conditions throughout.

If you're up for the challenge of tackling all eleven Munros on the main Cuillin Ridge, get in touch, as we spaces left on our 10-13 September course.
