Sue and I are not climbers so were unsure about this one, but - get yourself a good guide; follow Naismith's route; don't look down and when you get to the top you'll have had the biggest adrenalin rush of your life. Yippee!Ianto&Sue15/05/2007

With Rhona Fraser. From Sligachan to Lota Corrie face of Bhasteir Tooth. We climbed up way previously climbed, and then to left and then upward with delicate climbing. No further progress was possible, so climbed down – tricky. Then went further down into corrie. Rhona went furthest down and found she could climb up. I made a shortcut. We climbed to the top of Bhasteir Tooth. At last we had found Collie’s route!pwbellarby20/08/1995

From Slig over Gillean with my climbing mate AM. Bhasteir Tooth was where my 1st definition of 'bag' was born: you have to sit on the highest point. Later, after owning my own rope, the definition is updated to 'stand on ...'. (Although, it was nearly 'throw a stone at it ... on A'Chir, Arran).Eddie06/04/1992
Winter Traverse of the Cuillin Ridge - a dream trip come true. North to South w Martin S and 2 bivis on the ridge. perfect firm snow. 1st afternoon-this and the Tooth was a time consuming section involving 3 abseils and one jump ! Much easier doing the ridge n - s in winter where the difficulties here can be abd down not climbed up. The ropes thankfully pulled down after the long ab off the Tooth.Chris Pearson16/02/1991

The whole Cuillin Ridge after 5 years of waiting. w Ian & Steve.I was struggling badly now -feeling sick, weak, tired (dehydrated) and now shivering in the damp gloom as daylight dwindled. Steve heroically led Naismith's Route, Ian shot up;I just HAD to get up and quickly,which, despite limited leg lift in my waterproof leggings, was not too bad except for the last roll over the top. We all scuttled up to touch the top of the tooth in the gloom then hurriedly had to work out how to get up Am Bhasteir in a race against failing light.Chris Pearson28/05/1988
