Skye part 3: Rain, Midges and Views!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
Well Sunday evening, Monday and Tuesday brought some more of the damp mornings mixed in with sunny afternoons.  Euan and Gordon were out with me for the second course to build on their mountain   Monday was rather drench for our journey up on to Sgur Sgumain whilst Tuesday gave us a typically midges morning ascent up to An Diallaid.
Tuesday afternoon however gave us some great views from the ridge and a good chance for Euan to work on his wee battle with vertigo…
Plodding in the mist.

Making moves on wet rock takes a lot of concentration.

Euan happy on the scramble.

Gordon and Euan happy on the ridge!
