A sunrise start on the Cuillin ridge
An early start from a cold bivvy, above Coire Grundda, having climbed the Dubhs slabs the day before.
Arriving at the summit of Sgurr Alistair, a shadow of this peak sits out on the morning haze.

… and south, looking on towards Gars-bheinn and Sgurr nan Eag at the south end of the Cuillin ridge.

The very fine route of King’s Chimney (Diff) on Sgurr Mhic Choinnich.
A moody Inaccessible Pinnacle
The continuous profile of this scramble of rock slabs and short walls extends up from Loch Coruisk, initially to the summit of Sgurr Dubh Beag. Following a couple of exciting abseils off this summit, a further scramble up onto the munro of Sgurr Dubh Mor and on to the Cuillin ridge can be made.

An Teallach traverse
Starting at Dundonell and finishing in Corrie Hallie, our traverse started with tackling the fine summit of Bidean a’ Glas Thuill.
Fine views looking north from Bidean a’ Glas Thuill towards Little Loch Broom and on to the Summer Isles.
From the summit of Bidean a’ Glas Thuill the fine summit of our next challenge of Sgurr Fiona.
