This is a write up of the Cuillin Ridge which I did in September 2014. I've put together a PDF download which contains some useful hints and tips on how to get the most of your trip and the climbing gear and other equipment that you might need for the traverse.
Above is the first part of the ridge approaching the TD Gap and Sgurr Alasdair.
There will be a Scarpa Boot demo on Monday 10th November. We will also be running a mini comp in conjunction with this and the reset of the Panels. All score cards will be put in for a draw for a pair of shoes. Also on the night Scarpa shoes can be bought at a 10% discount from the shop.
