    First experience of the main Cuillin ridge what a great place. The weather was warm dry and sunny although rather hazy. I climbed the Inaccessible Pinnacle and touched the high point. I also took in Sgurr Mhic Choinich which was quite an exposed scramble. I am grateful to my guide who made the day.isabelle21/09/2014
    From Glen Brittle. A superb day out,climbing the fin to the top of the pinnacle & then abseiling down. With Pigeon/Ian/Ryan/Jim & Erin,with the assistance of our guide Jonah Jones.MorecambeMonkey21/06/2014
    1st of 2. Joe and I hired guide Jonah Jones to take us up the Pinn. He sets a decent pace, but youy do get a break every 1000 ft of ascent :D I didn't find the Pinn hard at all, it's all very safe and matter of fact :)bowzi19/06/2014
    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
    In party of three from Memorial Hut led by Skye guide Jonah Jones. Brilliantly clear morning allowed all to climb to top before rising winds and cloud.neimcv06/09/2013
    Final peak of our 4th day in Skye with Nick P, led by Matt Barrett up the long side. Much easier than I thought it would but glad of the rope! Glorious day with extensive views. Enjoyed going down the short side.signyred07/08/2013
    5th and last Munro of day. Weather worsened. Nipped up the Pinn and abbed off. Became misplaced on descent - went to bottom of gully instead of traversing earlier back to An Stac screes.Kevin2903507/10/2012

    my final Skye Munro, unlike my brother Anthony and my son Jamie for whom it is their first. was very fortunate as I climbed Sgurr Dearg with no idea what the Inn Pin east ridge would look like and whether I'd feel confident about free climbing it. When I saw it I thought, 'No Way' but as I was looking at it a guy came up and said he was about to climb it and would anyone like to come up too seconding on the rope. Like an excited school kid my hand was up like a shot, 'Yes, please me me me' !!!vegibagger25/08/1996

    First by VDiff direct ascent on sunny clear day. Again in 05/06/02 by going up by the fin/crest.Dugswell213/06/1995
    I thought I was either not going to climb this or would have to pay someone 50 to take me up there - not so! My postman friend free climbed it with a rope that we borrowed up there and I followed without falling. Sent Rob a very smug postcard with a tick on it.banksey19/05/1993
    Gerry climbed up first and using various slings, etc assisted the party of 8 up to the top. Sat on top of the summit rock. 13.55. to Coinnich.arranc01/06/1992
