Description

Situated on the southern end of the Isle of Skye is Black Cuillin Ridge and scattered across this igneous rock formation are 11 munros.

Over the course of four days, we will do our best to climb all of these ridge line peaks as we can.

Averaging about three ascents each day, we will hike and scramble through superb scenery, enjoying some excellent views and picking up some useful rock climbing tips along the way.

While none of the climbing is overly technical, a good level of physical fitness is requires. Our days will be long and involve plenty of scrambling on exposed ridges and up rocky pinnacles.

We will try to start our trip out with a good intro ridge, making our way for Coire Ghrunnda, which offers impressive views. Once we’ve made it up onto the ridge proper, we will ascend Sgurr Eag first before backtracking to Dubh Mor and finishing off the day by nipping up Alasdair.

The following day, we will return to the Coire Ghrunnda and ascend the An Stac screes. this brings us to a couloir between our first and second ascents of the day: Sgurr Mhic Choinnich and Inaccessible Pinnacle. Using a rope, we will make our way up and down both before heading on to Banachdich, our final ascent of the day.

The third day will be a slightly shorter day. We will  head up to An Dorus gap before beginning our ascent of Sgurr a’Ghreadaidh. Once back down, we will cross to the other side of the gap and tackle Sgurr a’Mhadaidh, which is the more technical of the two.

On our final day, we will head to the opposite side of the ridge and climb up to Coire a’Bhasteir before summiting the first munro, Gillean, via the west ridge. Afterwards, we will have a rest before heading up an easy ramp to Am Basteir and finishing the day off with an ascent of Bad Step in order to reach our final munro, Bruach na Frithe.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and exciting 4-day rock climbing adventure on the Isle of Skye’s Black Cuillin Ridge!

Had a great day out with my instructor Paul who was very helpful in introducing me to trad climbing and getting me to be very comfortable on the rocks. We did six 1-pitch climbs and one multi-pitch climb while enjoying the phenomenal view of Langdale amongst many Herdwick sheeps. Would have extended the experience if I had more time and definitely would do it again.
