Last weekend with Rich I completed the brilliant traverse of the Cuillin Ridge in full on winter conditions despite it being late march. The conditions were truly amazing.
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...

In reply to Foxy: That looked exceptional!

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

Cracking photos, great blog.
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!!!
