From south to north from Sail Liath to Bidein a' Ghlas Thuill. The pinnacles can be bypassed but where would the fun in that be??

Parked at Dundonnel Hotel and completed in 6hrs car to car. Pretty windy so no dangling of legs off Lord Berkeley's Seat but a stunning day to be out in the mountains. Waked from North to South including the pinnacles.

Cannot add as a winter climb as no crampons required on the day - great traverse!

Mostly summer conditions but snowfall during day and semi frozen conditions underfoot made this a mixture of both summer and winter climbing. Although axes and crampons carried they weren't used, additional care and focus required due to onset of winter conditions.

Did the full traverse of the pinnacles, dropped a short rope for Janis on second step. Beaut day. Exited over Glas Mheall Liath and picked our way between slimy slabs on NE shoulder above Allt a Ghlas Thuill before following valley floor out to Dundonnell Ho.

Good scrambling if a bit disjointed. Doing it clockwise definitely seems to be a better way of doing it. Had to put a rope down for Dad and Andy to take their minds away from the exposure of the grade 3 climb.

South to North - Established ourselves on the ridge via the Mod flake to the West of the Bad Step. Felt harder due to the exposure. The traverse was thrilling to say the least. Gently does it!

Bit wet, rain set in just after we started on the pinnacles. First main pinnacle (if taken direct) was a bit harder than grade 3 and used rope to bring up Mrs MB, rest was easier. Good ridge route, with plenty of variations possible in terms of scrambling. Will come back on a nicer day!
