Awesome long slab climb, which we then linked into the two munroes. Turned into quite the epic 11 hour day due to some descent route-finding issues!

Found the start this time but we had trouble navigating off, kind guide saved our bacon. Clag started just below ab and unfortunately didn't lift. 11.5 hour day, cracking group effort.

Top day. Sunny, warm, no wind. Over the ridge via Coire Ghrunda, down to Loch Coirusk, then up the ridge without any gear. Took the bypass path at Sgurr Dubh Beag. Easy scrambling for the whole route. 10 hours Glenbrittle start to finish. Short video here :

Boat in from Elgol. Started ridge about midday. Rain at start but glorious sunshine afterwards. Moved together to the abseil and found 50 m rope to be enough from the top anchor. The ridge to Sgurr Dubh Mor proved to be trickier than expected... Walked down to Glen Brittle campsite.

Brilliant easy adventure climbing. Chartered a fast RIB boat in from Elgol early morning, climbed in blazing sunshine, abbed in a downpour, continued to the Munro summit in a blizzard and descended in fog. Down in time for the Bella Jane boat back, with hot choccy on board! Perfect day :)

In by canoe the night before and camped at Coruisk, fantastic place to be. Ridge solo in 5.10 shoes just perfect mix of friction and steeper steps. All taken direct, rope didn't get a look in until the abseil. Descent off Dubh Beag to canoe out to the pub. Spantastic next day, what a weekend.

13 hour epic after a savage night of midge attacks whilst bivying out on the top above the Coruisk hut. Walked out through Coir' a' Ghrunnda and had trouble finding the best route out. Direct start over-rated, but ridge between first top and Sgurr Duhb Mor not rated enough: watch out for some tricky down climbs!

Fantastic route. Pitched direct start to get onto ridge, with endless slabs all the way to the top. Abseil over-rated, but did make for a great photo. Turned left once we'd reached the main ridge, and followed it for two more peaks before decending into a corrie. Came in by boat, did the ridge, bivi-ed over and then walked out on the hottest day of the year. Killer!

Ian Archer 30/May/09 Solo O/S

Skye for the weekend from B'ham. Arrive at Elgol 4.59 am Sat morning - the fast boat to Loch Coruisk. Up the slabs in big boots via the direct start. The friction so great my hands blead. Abseil not as scary as was made out to be, but the ridge only 2/3 done at that point. Hottest day in the year but strong winds kept us cool. Topped out on Sgurr Dubh Mor. Would have carried on to the next Munroe, but far too dehydrated. Excelent views all day.

Traversed to Glen Brittle after starting at midday in Coruisk. Soloed in big boots and pouring rain. Arrogantly took very little gear. Thick cloud from 500m upwards, and down to 300m on Brittle side of ridge. Could barely see the ground from the top of the abseil. Strayed too far left along a tempting terrace up the west ridge of Skurr Dubh Mor and ascended a sketchy chimney to get back to the crest. Relieved to have prior knowledge of route from Sgurr Dubh Mor onwards and eventually drop out of the cloud at the bottom of Coir a Ghrunnda. Felt like quite a serious day.

Great route. Walked in from Gelen Brittle round the end of Gars Bheinn. Considerably more hoar and less visibility for the top 200m than we'd bargained for! The descent through Coire a'Ghrunda in the dark was an experience in itself.
