/ Ben Moon on the Cuillin Ridge
Apparantly, up there with Chris Plant and Ben Pritchard.....so I was told.
Better watch his blog for a report.
High E number Katherine Schirrmacher was up there the other week too.
The trad revolution continues.
And I thought all the folk last week with shoulder bags and bouldering mats walking into the Cuillin were just a touch wee bit optimistic with their protection methods for trad climbing or a traverse of the Cuillin Ridge....!!!!!
Seriously though there seemed to be more boulderers about than actual trad climbers....
Sit start to the Inn Pin you think?
I saw them on the ridge on Saturday. Thought it was Ben Moon, but then wondered if I was suffering from the heat and had imagined it.
They appeared to be doing the traverse, but I don't know how they got on. One of their party dropped out above Coire a'Ghrunnda.
Blimey, so there is a Font 8c on Skye after all.

One of the best posts I've read in a long time.

Moon now plans to do a few Corbetts before tackling any more Munros. Si O'Conner said he'd done the line years ago and it was path.
Any chance of teaching TL how to spell psyched?!
