Ridge Traverse success again; 15/16 September


Congratulations to Graham, Jonathan & Dave on successful Ridge Traverse on Thursday and Friday will Gillian as their guide. Less than 2 weeks after her previous success Gill commented on there being significantly less light at either end of the day.

They had 2 very different days weather-wise. Cloud-free laidback climbing on a very long hot first day (12.5hrs), was followed by an early start and a heavy shower arriving before lunch on day 2 (11hrs).

Traverse Success 21/22 April


Mike’s report.

Huge congratulations to Willi Moore on achieving his lifelong ambition of a Traverse. Scott Webster is joining the Skye Guides team this season and was along to help. Willi’s company, the weather and the climbing were all a pleasure. Great start to the season!

Only time for a quick photodownload in this hectic schedule I’m afraid- enjoy.
