Training day on Sgurr a Mhadaidh (918m). This day will include grade 3 scrambling. We will leave our bivouac equipment on the mountain to prepare for the next night.
We will traverse several summits.
We will continue the traverse.
This spare day can be used for the traverse in case of bad weather. If the ridge has been successfully completed during the last two days, we can climb the summit of Cioch.
In our bivouacs.
Keep in mind that good weather is essential for the traverse of the Cuillin. Me and my team will aim whenever possible to complete the route. Given bad weather, we will provide four days of quality scrambling, climbing and mountaineering.
