2 Classic rounds to finish September
I’ve been having far too much fun in the beautiful weather this week and it has been great to finish such a good season with 2 of the uber classic rounds.
Best known is the round of Coire Lagan which takes in the Cioch, Bad Step to Alasdair, King’s Chimney and climaxes with the In Pinn. Local enthusiast Gerry has explored quite a bit of the Cuillin alone but wants to explore further. Our super pure and fast (8.5hrs) round on Wednesday gave him plenty of tips and encouragement for the future and loads of enjoyment for both of us.-
We started on Sgurr a Bhasteir (with a 20 year ambition finally put to bed for me across a certain intimidating step),
climbed Naismith’s Route on the Tooth (2nd time for John),
a new line up onto Am Basteir (not easier sadly), Lota Ledge onto Gillean and then a classic descent of Pinnacle Ridge to finish (8.5hrs as well).
