With Jim, Chris & guide Malcolm - approach via Am Bastier - little climbing & quite a bit of roped lowering - wet rock/mist.ger24/05/2019
With Reg Willis & Chris Meadows and led by Malcolm Airey from Skye Guides. Abseiled down from the summit and off down King's Cave Chimney. 8rs 20mins for the round. My final Munro Top.Jim.Fothergill24/05/2019
With Jonah and Iain. From Am Basteir. Short abseil off Am Basteir and a straightforward down climb (no ropes) which I nevertheless managed to make look difficult. Then an easy slabby ascent to the summit. A fun descent underneath overhanging chock stones making for a cave like feel. Followed by that amazing 24m abseil off the tooth. Lovely dry, sunny, warm day. Fantastic stuff.Owen B13/05/2019
am basteir, basteir tooth with jonah, squrr a fionn choie, squrr a bhasteirrobertphillips25/04/2019
From Am Basteir. Easy downclimb and abseil then up the slabby rock. Warmed up a bit so mercifully verglas melting. Awkward move into cave and exciting abseil down King's Chimney after digging out in situ anchor slings. Descended Coire a' Bhasteir to Sligachan in sunshine to end a great mountain day. 7 hours 40 mins.Wycombe Wanderer30/03/2019
