It's Almost Time...

Whilst the world is watching the Royal Wedding I shall be somewhere on that ridge. Britain's only proper alpine style route. Hugely psyched!!!!

Abseiling off the Inaccessible Pinnacle the only Munro you need rock climbing skills to ascend. 
Hint its easier round the back!

Our chances of success? There is an 80% failure rate on first attempts at the complete traverse and presumably a lot of these attempts are by very capable mountaineers. We are going to have to be good.

 Interested yourself, then Mike Lates a Mountain Guide on Skye has written this excellent guide.
