average rating is 3 out of 5

Join us for our guided traverse of the Skye Cuillin Ridge, one of the most sought-after and memorable mountaineering challenges in the UK. With over 13,000ft of ascent across complex, exposed and testing terrain, this ridge requires respect, a cool head, a high level of fitness and favourable conditions to have our best chance of success. This trip is not for everyone and unless you are a very competent & experienced mountaineer then this should not be your first ambition in the Cuillins. We will use the best 2 days to attempt the traverse, the other is a spare day to allow us to have some flexibility for weather. Please be sure to check the grading information also. We will only take bookings as a pair if they already know each other.
