Cuillin Ridge (Traverse)Isle of Skye, SCOTLAND
Climbs 9 – Rocktype Gabbro – Altitude 919m a.s.l – Faces ?
Can take anything from 12 to 20 hours! (Or three if you're Andy Hyslop.) Prepare well, and take plenty of water.
In winter, it is important to pick a good weather slot after snow and then hard frost. A full moon and good visibility will allow a single push traverse.
Moving together is essential in case of bad weather or a rapid thaw. Most parties bivvy en route. Soloing virtually everything is almost essential in winter.
