  • Have the chance to enjoy stunning views out over the Isle of Skye

  • Get the opportunity to climb another munro too.


Come to Scotland’s stunningly beautiful Isle of Skye and take on the Inaccessible Pinnacle on Cuillin Ridge!

The 12 munros (mountains) of Cuillin Ridge are the toughest peaks to climb in all of the UK and on our 1-day ascent we will head up, perhaps, the most challenging one of all.

Inaccessible Pinnacle is the most iconic of these munros on Cuillin Ridge rising to 986 meters above sea level.

After meeting up first thing in the morning, we will make our approach to the base of the pinnacle, generally by scrambling along the West Ridge of Sgùrr Dearg, via a steep hike up Coire na Banachdich or a rock climbing approach from Coire Lagan.

Once we have arrived at the base of the pinnacle, we will climb up its east ridge, which allows us plenty of spots to stop and regroup in order to stay together as we climb.

After we’ve made it to the summit, we will take some time to enjoy the views (weather permitting) before making a steep but straightforward abseiling descent back down to the base.

Once we’re back down, the instructor will determine if there is enough time to perhaps tackle another nearby munro, such as Sgùrr na Banachdaich or Sgùrr MhicChoinnich. Otherwise, we will hike back down to the cars and head out.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for an incredibly exciting and challenging day of rock climbing to the peak of Inaccessible Pinnacle of the Isle of Skye’s Cuillin Ridge!
