A fantastic Mountaineering experience. This epic route/ mountain expedition on Skye really does present an array of monstrous teeth set amongst some of the best rock and mountain scenery I'v ever encountered, striking ocean views and scrambling that goes on for ever but which you never tire of. I was amazed at just how technical the route finding was and soon learnt that that interment knowledge of which way to turn at every other rock was key to success.

Finally a weather window.... straight up to Skye!! Stunning two days on the ridge, amazing weather and beautiful views! Fab to have the time to take it all in, and much nicer when you can see where you're going! Those long slog of a walk in, and outs are totally worth it!

Wow, what a day, what a route. Set of from Glen Brittle at 3:30am via Coirre a Ghrunda, dropped sacks for out and back to Gars Bheinn. After beautiful clear skies clag came in heavy and we got lost around the TD gap/ Sgurr Alasdair for about 3 hrs. We somehow managed to get back on track though and completed the ridge in 15 hrs; 20hrs total day. Moved solo all day. Couldn't have had better weather (apart from the unfortunate few hrs of clag). Collies Ledge. Lotta Corrie Route on Bhasteir Tooth - note this is a lot furter down the mountain than expected, not the first break/chimney. We were apparently not the first to end up on the wrong line owing to a significant amount of in situ ab tat...

Set off from Glen Brittle campsite at 4am, grueling slog up to Gars-bheinn summit for 6:30 and amazing views as the sun rose. Sgurr nan Eag at 7:30. Lost some time working our way over the scree slopes on the South side of Sgurr Dubh Mor, summit 9am. Much easier to go on the other side after Sgurr Dubh an Da Bheinn and come back the same way. Bit of confusion at the TD gap where we met a bunch of lads from York who thought they were on it, scrambled past to find the abseil into the gap off fixed slings. 10:45am. Climb back up pretty tricky in hiking boots and rucksack. Very smooth and polished and only had a limited rack. Managed to get up by way of a half body jam. Very relieved double arm jam at the first break after the crux. Recommend climbing boots. Summited the spectacular Sgurr Alasdair at 12pm then scrambled up and over Sgurr Thearlaich across house roof slabs. Abseiled into the Bealach Mhic Choinnich to Kings Chimney. Climbed in hiking boots but hauled my bag up before belaying Rebecca this time. Much more enjoyable climbing here. Sgurr Mhic Choinnich at 3pm. Skipped An Stac and then soloed the Inaccessible Pinnacle which was awesome. Abseiled off at about 5:30. Quick bite to eat on Sgurr Dearg. Called it a day after Sgurr na Banachdich at 6:45pm. Didn't fancy a bivvy out on the ridge with no bag. Will come back in September to attempt again and probably miss out the climbing so we can go lighter and quicker. Not bad for our first attempt though. Ascended Coir' an Eich and back to the Glen Brittle road. Luckily managed to catch a lift back to Sligachan Campsite with a really friendly couple from Brazil on tour of UK for their 2 year anniversary

Amazing. 12.5 hours on the ridge. Plenty of snow in the bealachs which was unfortunate as we were in trainers. First half of the day was complete clag, dodged TD gap climb by going up west ridge of Alasdair, which was hairy. Also dodged King's chimney and skirted round Am Basteir on Sligachan side. This last dodge was probably harder than climbing over the thing as it involved loose scree and hard snow with no winter gear. Rocks make half decent axes. A great day. Only met 2 other people all day.

Went well til we hit the stretch after the In-Pin in the full sun then it became a bit of a motivational struggle.

Couple of cheats in collies instead of Kings but did go to MhicCoinnich summit. Also detoured up easy slabs to base of In Pinn rather than An Stac. Pete lead TD gap which was more like HS than VD and I lead Naismiths which is very easy but in a wild position. Limped into Sligachan just as the heavens opened. Up there as one of my best days in the mountains. Amazing day out!

Did the rest the next day carrying water and bivi gear, I led TD Gap and Naismith's, we skipped King's Chimney. Be aware, the spring just after Bruach na Frýthe is only a trickle just now.

Two-day traverse of the main ridge, including all the climbs, with a planned bivi. We pitched the TD Gap and Naismith's Route, moved together on An Stac and the Inaccessible Pinnacle, and abseiled in four places; other than that the rope stayed in the bag. The bivi was beautiful, we woke to a cloud inversion which stayed with us for much of the second morning. Given the excellent weather I'm glad we got to experience that. I understand the sense in trying it as a one-day push, but I think we'd have had less fun.

So after a false start in 2006 and thankfully so as I would have been deeply unprepared for the task of doing it in one day. After the initial slog up to the summit of Gars Bheinn, the ridge began in earnest. fast moving with no stops save for throwing water down my neck and ramming in naked fruit bars and bites of a chorizo sausage. We had a small miscommunication which lost Dom for 15 mins only to discover him on the summit of Sgurr Dubh Na Da Bheinn. A small wait at the TD gap for a party doing it over several days, and a sprint onwards. We lost DOm to fatigue at the Inn Pin but then no need to collect the car teh next day. There was no wait at teh Inn Pin which was amazing. and then the gfrind began. I hit the wall just past Shurrna Banachdich, water and food only gave brief rest bites form needing to dig deep and push through despite exhaustion and overwhelming heat from the afternoon sun!! The technical difficulties of the Bidein Druim nan Ramh were relentless neverending series of climbs and descets many abseiled were doen climbed to speed it all up but some were necessary. Bruach na frithe was a welcom sight and we knew it was in the bag. Up Naismiths route to Am Bastier summit and then onward to Sgurr nan Gillean. which took an age to summitdue to numerous rests and the onset of passing out, water and sugar being deeply lackign ta teh this juncture. A quick hand shake with the lads smiles a summit pic inthe usual selfportratit method and it was evry man fo rhim self to the pub. I arrived 30 mins later than simon having descended in 2hrs 15mins as fast as my now tremmbling and knee shatered legs coudl go. What an expedition. 17hrs 15mins from carpark to pub and almost exactly 12hrs ont he ridge itsself give or take 5 mins. there are no real superlatives that can describe this route. A must for all climbers, walkers and mountaineers, hard men or aspiring ones alike, no matter how easy or hard you climb. The best of what is British mountain adventure.

Personal favourite bits: An Stac (definitely worth including); the In Pin; and the tops of Mhadaidh (superb scrambling on the second top). Fine lead of Naismith's Route by Matthew at the end of a long day, and good to meet Rob about 2/3 of the way along. Some debate about an alpine grade - felt like a big AD to me.

Amazing day. 12 hours from TD Gap bivi, with initial section the previous evening. Probably one of the more serious days out that you can have on the British hills, on account of it being so exposed and in-your-face for just so long and with huge death fall potential awaiting a stumble pretty much at all points of the ridge. Billy led TD gap at 6am, we pitched Inn-Pin and soloed Basteir Tooth (this section was the most confusing on the ridge.) Wall-to-wall sunshine, cooling breeze. 1500 miles round trip from Cornwall over a long weekend. Brilliant stuff, fantastic five star route and a day that will live long in the memory. Cheers Bill.

GB - SG 14h50min. First attempt and first time on the ridge. TD gap (amazing, dew-wet approach scary); King's Chimney (fantastic); In Pinn (moved together, superb); after a weary lull around Greadaidh, 4 tops of Mhdad and 3 tops of Bid went well; Naismiths (Exposed and utterly fantastic knowing the end was in reach); Bhastier boulder problem to summit (desperate, required combined tactics!); tourist route off Gillean proved quite tricky at end of day. Back to Slig in time for a pint! Loved it. Camped near start of ridge and I got the job of fetching the tent the next day. Unforgettable.

Left Glenbrittle at 2am, Gars Bheinn at 5:15, skipped the TD gap by West Ridge of Sgurr Alasdair as it started raining, had some trouble getting off Surr Thearlaich. Just after King Chimney, after only 3h30 on the ridge, I managed to badly roll my ankle and was fearing it might be broken, so descended the An Stac scree slopes and back to Glenbrittle. I'll be back for the Inn Pinn!

Managed, over two days, bivvying at Bealach na Glaic More, to do N-S from Sligachan Hotel (Sgurr nan Gillean) to An Stac by the Inn Pin, before exiting on the false stone shoot (not advisable - ends in a fairly easy down-climb at the end of a convex slope, but with rock fall imminent all around).

Climbed via TD Gap and King's Chimney, but missed out Naismith's Route due to threatening rain and novices in the party. Unfinished business - a good excuse to do it again! Had glorious weather for first day and a half, but finished in rain. Led all the climbing pitches. Got to bivvy site around 10pm after climbing the Inn Pin in a gorgeous lingering twilight. Others left me to put my feet up while they went to collect the stash and I watched the sun hang above the horizon, sipping Talisker from my hip flask. One of my greatest alcoholic experiences!

After an alpine start, a scorching hot day and a midge infested bivi in below Brach na Frithe we made it to the base of Gillean the next day, but both of us were exhausted and we retreated to the road. The closest I have come depite two further and much more experienced attempts.

A stunning day. Bivvied on Garsbheinn, left at 4, Gillean at 16.15. Should have gone on to do Greater Traverse but too tempted by the sight of the Slig on a hot day!

Long time ago but I remember that we ran most of it and got very low on water. I can't remember carrying a rope.
