Guided by Graham Uney with Tom Wells final summit of an awesome weekendcolinfielding15/07/2019
From Glenbrittle youth hostel, via Coire an Eich and An Diallaid - an easy route on a small but good scree 'path'. I looked down on Sgurr Thormaid and felt incredulous that I had 'done' the whole ridge in a day, when I was about 30 years younger, but that was on dry rock on a June day, not the grimly dripping black pyramid I was now looking at.Isbjorn Winter Round11/01/2019
Climbed with Rob Donald led by Jonah on same day as Inn Pinn. Fantastic weather skirted the ridge to summit. Long descent to Mountan hutdavid.walker4007/06/2018

Climbed solo. My first Skye Munro! Climbed the easy route from Glen Brittle YHA via good paths up Coire a' Ghreadaidh and Coir' an Each to meet the spur of An Diallaid, followed by a steepish but straightforward rocky ascent to the summit. Returned same route (total time less than 5 hours - was down by 12.30pm and driving to Perth). No real difficulties or scrambling on this route, though the scree slopes on An Diallaid are steep and unpleasant in places. Weather was perfect - blue skies, zero wind and views stretching to the Outer Hebrides. My first clear look at the main Cuillin ridge from high up - absolutely terrifying! Makes Crib Goch look like the South Downs! I don't know how I will make it up some of the other Munro's (never mind the In Pinn!).jamessteel10025/08/2016

Very tough ascent on the screes on sgurr nan Gobhair. Narrower than we remembered - a lot of scrambling. Lost half of a pole. Cloudy with occasional showers. Dramatic views as mist cleared from the summit. Fantastic!gercal5321/09/2012
