Repeat of a last year, again with Tony) but could see it all this time in sunshine and the dry !- all so much easier and reassuring when it is dry and you know where you are going form previous knowledge rather than wondering if you are climbing up / along a dead end.However without last year;s cloud and rain we could see the drops all too wellChris Pearson16/06/1985
Raining. Boggy 'paths' to Coire Lagan w Tony, Dickie, Steve. Raining. Easy uphill to Sgumain. Greasy slabs. interesting scrambly ridge -to Alasdair Rock - Tricky to find correct R1 route (a mod climb)up Threalaich (in our Scrambles in Skye book) in cloud and rain. Great run down Great Stone Chute - until my boot split, and both my camera and watch stopped working in the damp - otherwise a great (if wet) adventure.Chris Pearson23/04/1984
