Topic - cuilin ridge - leaving gear behind - and which direction

marzi - on 18 Aug 2013
So, depending on a break in the wet weather, me and the missus are going up next week to attempt the Cuilin ridge. I'm worried about how much gear I have to leave behind on the abs, is their plenty of large polished boulders I can loop the rope around so I can easily pull it down after me? Or will I need to bring lots of extra slings and snap gates to leave behind?

Also shes keen to do the traverse North to south, thus leaving a lot of the tech climbing out and abseiling a lot of the difficulties, believing this would be faster but I'm concerned as there is severe climb out of the TD gap this way and is that avoidable, I.E. can one drop into a gully or something and scramble around it?

Thanks for reading
