|Amemorable day with Richard, Colin, Rob and Alan, on Jessica Kate of Hebridean Seatours, Barra with Angus and John. Swell was double than the forecast 1m but we were expertly landed by dinghy, aided by handline from R. Rock very slippy . R set up fixed traverse N to NW corner with one awkward move due to green slippiness. From corner it was an easy scramble, unroped back above the traverse, then back across a gloopy ledged scoop then up blocky steps of the NW corner to the grassy summit, with no cairn. Cool breezy sun. Returned the same way but with a different ,more northerly exit point as the tide had fallen and a steep barnacled ledge offered a safe opportunity for the dinghy.||Denise||28/04/2018|
|Landed in 2+m swell, NW face c.100m from N end, v slippery early season: microspikes and fixed rope for traverse R; once above splash zone a v nice scramble R on good ledge/ramp then L (puffins) to N ridge, nice scramble then easy grass to summit, stone in grass. On descent, below ledge we traversed short way back S then abseil (piton) to small ledge (c.NL 5454 8274), back into inflatable in 2-3m swell, much more than the 1m in all the forecasts. Great boat skills by Angus of Hebridean Sea Tours out of Castlebay. Report & pics https://www.dropbox.com/s/yk6qmeow99fn1td/MingulayStacsReport2018.docx?dl=0||RHW||28/04/2018|
|Certainly an interesting landing and departure, with a fine scramble up to the grassy top. Thanks to Richard for leading and to Rob for organising||Colin Crawford||28/04/2018|
|2m swell a little too much to land, but N corner looks doable at maybe VDiff, with a couple of options. Pics https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10203048802298455&type=1&l=4b6dbf02c7||RHW||03/05/2017|
|(info only, not visited): F Gillies (Boy James skipper) mentioned in 2017 landed 2 climbers (NW face near W corner) a couple of years earlier||RHW||01/06/2015|
|(info only, not visited): Kevin Howett (2013) reports: no recorded recent ascent as far as I can track down. I am pretty certain it was climbed by islanders hundreds of years ago – they collected eggs and birds and feathers for trade.||RHW||01/06/1950|
