Part of a half round of Corie Lagan.atreides788729/05/2019
With Mike Lates (guide)Oik31/07/2018
Rob and myself from memorial hut.. Perfect weather with the exception of drifting cloud on tops. Climbed path to coire. h Headed left up edge of coire, avoiding worst scree to belach as advised by Jonah. . Had lunch surveyed the last section to summit at lunch. Crows calling. Jonah did not arrive. Climbed the ridge across grade 2 scramble and airy positions at all times. Summitted alone sitting in front of shattered memorial stone. Descent relentless across ridge then to belach and a scree descent down left side. A few falls leading to summery return walk. Completed all Munro’s on Skye with this summit. . We will return because these are the mountains of great challenge, skill and drama.. The weather however prevails.david.walker4009/06/2018

2nd of 2. After lunch we descended what I'd imagine would be tricky slabs in the wet. Stashed the packs and then an easy enough walk over to Mhic Choinnich. Some scree running to follow before an easy walk out. ~12km, 1400m 8hr.bowzi19/06/2014

EKMC bunkhouse weekend. With guide Jonah, Andy Bennett, Anne Dawson , David Black joined by Caroline. Superb day. Beat the rain. But the An Stac screes were horrendous. Route from Memorial hut following same path to a sgurr Dearg then into Coire Lagan up the left of the An Stac screes onto ridge to summit. Roped for small section.munromurph03/05/2014
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

Waited for another sunny day, thought to have another look at Inn Pin. Did not even attempt, free climbing it with no rope not a good idea need a rock climber friend. So headed for this peak instead. Very rewarding view from top. Company: Soloiandesbottes12/05/2009
