Mountaineering, Skye

12°C, NE light breeze, lifting cloud.
Today, we felt like proper mountaineers, not just hill walkers.
Ian, the mountain guide we hired was brilliant. To made two munros, after ascending through An Dorus, a straightforward, if steep ascent.
First, the more difficult Sgurr a’ Ghreadaidh (pronounced gre-teh).

Ian led on rope on the start out of the shute and we walked the rest. The Ridge is blocky on rock that offers good grip. There is very little space on its summit, we could just about stand on the summit.
Return to Dorus and make Sgurr a’ Madaidh (pronounced Vay-teh).
