/ Winter Traverse of the Cuillin Ridge Report
The ridge was fantastic if a tad tiring and a bit scary in places, here is my blog of the route, I hope it makes sense as I am still pretty worn out...
Great report and magnificent pictures... well done!
Superb and congratulations!
Well done ! Thanks for posting.
Great report and photos.
A really fabulous collection of pictures.
Way beyond my comfort zone, but having messed about on bits of the ridge in the more wintery months of the year, that looked like some of the best winter conditions you could possibly have up there. Who would have thought it at the end of March?
I was lurking around the Red Cuillin and camped out on Sgurr na Stri on the Saturday night, so I could see how spectacular it would have been up there: http://www.scottishhills.com/html/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=231474#231474

Quick question - blog photo 12 - what the hell are all those massive lines in the snow to the RHS of the ridge on the slope up to Bruach na Frithe????!!!!! Looks like giant snow worms!!!
Outstanding blog, fabulous photos and nicely written.
Loved it. An experience that will be with you forever, I'm sure.
