Go Further!
Judy and Mary

Mary, Judi and Kay had a bit of luck with the weather on Skye in mid June
and took the chance to do a few scrambles they have been keen to do for a while. On Sunday we climbed up to the summit of Am Basteir and then scrambled over the tricky ground to get the view from the Bhasteir Tooth. We abseiled off and carried on over to Bruach na Frithe and headed down the NW ridge back to the Sligachan for a well earned cup of tea.

On Monday we had dry, misty, atmospheric conditions on Pinnacle Ridge. The mist lifted before we reached the fine summit of Sgurr nan Gillean from where we had wonderful views of the whole Skye Ridge. Mary was especially pleased with herself for this was her final Skye Munro. It was champagne rather than tea in the Slig that evening.

Five years ago we guided Mary and Jude on their first Cuillin Munro, the Innaccessible Pinnacle. Mary was not sure she would ever get to the top of the other Cuillin peaks but she has been back several times and now she has completed all the Skye Munros. That leaves her around a hundred Munros to go, which has got her thinking, why not take the chance to raise money for some charities by ‘Doing the Last One Hundred’.

Watch this space, knowing how determined Mary is she will do her best to meet the challenge I am sure she has already inwardly set herself.
