DFrank 28 Jun Solo Fantastic. Left hut with Orlando at 7:45, topped out on Sgurr Dubh na Da Bheinn at just after 12. Made really good progress, lovely continuous scrambling, and ended up doing abseil as missed way round. 50m half just long enough. Horrible descent only took two hours this time, but my god was it hot. Awesome end to our time on Skye.

Back at the car by 9.20pm and the hut by 11pm. A long but great day all in great weather.

Nice ridge - enjoyable padding up gneiss slabs with a few 'shoulders'. One abseil at end of ridge, at Sgurr Dubh Beag. At this point, the girls decided it looked too misty/cold to continue up along the main ridge, so I free-styled a descent down from there (lots of scrambling; one ab; found a large deer antler). Got boat in/out from Elgol which added to experience. A great day.

Redjesta 6 Aug, 2011 Solo O/S 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!

Ian Archer 30 May, 2009 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.

Karlos 30 May, 2009 Solo O/S 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!

size9hex ?May, 2009 Solo O/S 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.

Neil Adams 31 Dec, 2008 Solo 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.
