Wet day on the Clach Glas – Blaven traverse

The day started off well today, but we were soon in the cloud, followed by quite a bit of rain. That didn't stop Simon, Catherine and I enjoying one of the best mountaineering routes on Skye, and hence the UK; the Clach Glas – Blaven traverse.

We gained the ridge in good time, but the wet rock thereafter slowed us down a bit. This sustained route takes a cunning line up the north ridge of Clach Glas, before descending the infamous Imposter and then weaves back and forth over the south ridge and eventually gains the Putting Green. The final section involves a short steep wall and finally a long pitch up a chockstone filled gully.

Well done to Simon and Catherine for putting in a huge amount of effort today!
