This morning the clouds were low as we left Glen Brittle but they lifted and the sun came out as the day progressed. We went into Coirie Ghrunda and went up Sgurr nan Eag, Sgurr Dubh Mor and then traversed below Sgurr Alasdairs screes to the top of the Sgumain stone shute. On the way down we took Collies route to the Cioch.
A good day!

Today we have been lucky with good weather in spite of a poorish forecast. The rain held off all day and it has not been too blustery.
We did the Clach Glas traverse onto Blaven, enjoying fine views across Skye, Torridon, the Outer Hebrides and even across to Ben Nevis.
Photos will follwo next week as I have forgotten my camera lead!

I spent the last two days in North Wales with Jo & Mark on an intro to scrambling course. It was pretty windy and we had some heavy showers, a real change from April!
We went up Seniors Ridge and down the Gribin (see photo) on bank holiday Monday and hardly saw another soul. The only people we saw were from a distance in Cwm Idwal and again on the tops of the Glyders.
Yesterday we went up Little and North Gullies on Tryfan which were nicely sheltered from a strong Westerly wind. Again we did not see another soul until we reached the summit.
A great couple of days in good company.
