Spring on Sgurr nan Eag.

on the descent of Sgurr nan Eag

Sandy, Kath, ‘Bill’ & Kate were guided by nineonesix for the fourth May Bank Holiday in a row.  As has now become a tradition, a different second instructor joined them – this year it was the turn of Nathan.

We were looking for an exploratory, rugged and spectacular peak that was not too exposed.  Sgurr nan Eag on Skye fitted the description perfectly as an ideal introductory Cuillin peak.

The forecast was for the conditions to improve steadily throughout the day and this was indeed the case.  Lovely dry rock on the scramble sections and fantastic views of the ridge, such as the one shown above.

Because nineonesix works with low client ratios, everyone was able to safely tackle a descent route of their choice.  Nathan’s clients tried to take the ridge as directly as possible, whilst Jim’s clients looked at route-finding through some easier, but still serious terrain.

To end another wonderful day we enjoyed sunshine on the descent from Coir a’Ghrunnda and the path to Glenbrittle.
