Es Tresidder, Skye Ridge: a new record: here on the Inn Pin at 1.24.02, 88 kb
As reported here at on Saturday, Es Tresidder just broke the record for the traverse of Skye's Cuillin Ridge in a time of 3 hrs 17 min 28 sec, taking a full 15 minutes off the previous record.

The boys at Hot Aches have got a treat for us all:

"Well known to many British mountaineers, the Cuillin Ridge is the most perhaps the greatest mountain range in the country and has a distinctly alpine feel to it. The knife edge ridge takes in a total of 3,000 metres of ascent along it's 10 km length. The terrain is tough and exposed and involves a huge amount of scrambling as well as several rock climbing sections.

Hot Aches filmed Es on a previous attempt to break the record back in October 2006. We had planned to film him again this year but unfortunately were committed elsewhere this week."
