|Couldn't land (good slabs), as too much swell, but easiest route, as used by islanders in 1800s, evidently via the open topped cave in W face, maybe VS? Report & pics https://www.dropbox.com/s/yk6qmeow99fn1td/MingulayStacsReport2018.docx?dl=0||RHW||28/04/2018|
|2m swell a little too much to land, but SW corner to R of cave looks quite doable but birdy; N face cleaner and a proper rock climb maybe VS. Pics https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10203048802298455&type=1&l=4b6dbf02c7||RHW||03/05/2017|
|(info only, not visited): Kevin Howett reports (2013): no recorded ascent in modern times, but was told by John Allen McNeil of Barra that the Mingulay islanders used to be dropped on the west face of the stack and could climb into a huge sea cave (which we have had a look into) and climb out the top. Thatís how they rigged the rope bridge to the main island to harvest the sea birds originally and graze sheep in the 1800s. Apart from that, no recorded ascents.||RHW||01/06/1950|
