For our final day of our Skye Munros Course, Steve, myself and our team of 6 tackled the northern 3 Munros on the main Cuillin Ridge; Sgurr Nan Gillean, Am Basteir and Bruach na Frithe.
We ascended the brilliant West Ridge of Sgurr Nan Gillean before then ascending the East Ridge of Am Basteir. Sgurr Nan Gillean must be one of my favourite mountains in the UK, with three excellent ridges emanating from its lofty summit, none of them easy.
On the East Ridge of Am Basteir, we stayed close to the crest, and tackled the bad step in both directions, before finally cutting beneath Am Basteir and crossing the head of Fionn Choire and up our eleventh Munro; Bruach Na Frithe, the only Munro on the main Cuillin Ridge to feature a trig point.
The weather remained largely dry today, but we did have a sharp shower of hail. It definitely felt quite autumnal.
