Pinnacle Ridge, Skye

Pinnacle ridge this morning with Sgurr nan Gillean the final summit.

A very early start this morning to head back North upto Skye to meet Darren, Mark and Fraser at 6.30am so we could try and get as much done as possible before the temp got too high. It didn't really work as it was still 20C at 9am this morning. We made our way to the foot of Pinnacle ridge but unfortunately for Darren and Fraser the heat and Yesterdays ascent of the Inn Pinn had taken it's toll. They turned around and headed back down whilst Mark and I carried on up. A great route with lots of great scrambling on pretty sound rock, we arrived at the third pinnacle in good time and abseiled down. From here on in the scrambling is sustained but excellent and we topped out just in time for lunch. We descended down Sgurr nan Gillean's west ridge and headed back out to the Slig for a well deserved drink. Working for Skye Guides again today.
