Steve was out with Catherine and Mark on Thursday and Friday, and successfully completed one the best mountaineering challenges in the UK; a two day traverse of the Skye Cuillin Ridge. They started by catching the early morning speedboat from Elgol, and bivied just after the Three Teeth of Thormaid, before finishing the remainder of the ridge yesterday. Despite a damp start, the weather gods looked kindly down on them and soon the weather cleared and it remained dry, if a bit windy for the rest of their traverse. A huge well done to them all!
It was a bit of a different story of Skye today, with low cloud and rain for a good chunk of the day. I was out with Martin and Jean. Jean has already completed her round of the Munros, but Martin only has a handful left. Today, we ticked off Sgurr Mhic Choinnich, The In Pinn and Sgurr na Banachdich, leaving Martin with only 7 more to go. They did well, particularly considering the prevailing conditions. All the best to Martin in his quest to complete all 282 of them, not long to go now!
