Back on Skye.

I've just got back from another four days of work for Skye guides. Day 1 saw us fighting on through the wind and rain and grabbing Sgurr a'Mheadaidh, day two and we headed for the Southern Munros to get Sgurr nan Eag and Sgurr Dubh Mor which Alex still had to 'tick off'.
After a big day and with the weather set to come in, in the afternoon we had a short day three and grabbed the In Pinn and were back at the car before the rain started. With Yesterdays forecast being the best we headed for Pinnacle ridge on Sgurr nan Gillian, after topping out we descended the west ridge and headed over Am Bastier, abbing Naismith's and King's cave chimney and on to Bruache na Frithe. A great day out with lots of interest the whole way. That's my work on Skye finished for the moment but hopefully I'll be back soon.

Umm, where should I thread my ab rope. At the top of Kings cave chimney.
