Day 1 of Cullin Ridge Traverse. Francis Blunt (guide) and Robert Wight (MMC) Sunny, warm, high cloud and perfect viz. 11 hour day. Stacked abseil from West Face of In Pinalexmaclennan31/05/2014
First walk in The Cuillins - absolutley stunning scenary - the best I have seen of anywhere in the UK. Menacing beauty! Did the walk with Rach & Gillian from Skye Guides. Weather was perfect - not a cloud in the sky and the sun was shining. The InPin was good fun and not as difficult as expected. Could be solo'd but best to abseil off. Also did Sgur Mhic and joining ridge. One of my best days in the hills. Descended the scree slopes at the back down to the Lochan which was surprisingly fun and fast to get down. Great great day!scholesy13/10/2013

Reached this top in mist with many climbers. We descended the side of the Inn Pinn and decided not to try it as we had no climbing kit. We tried to find the route to Coire Lagan, but failed to find the rightfully. We eventually found the top again and headed back to Bannadich for an way descent.
