Guided Inn Pinn climbing partner wanted, summer, flex. dates
by Dommie » Sat May 28, 2016 3:23 pm
I am looking for potential climbing partner(s) to climb (and obviously safely descent) Inn Pinn. The price of the guided climb/person reduces with the number of people accordingly. As an example from Jonah Jones, a highly recommended Skye tour guide's website:
1 person: £170
2 people: £90/person
3 people: £80/person
4 people: £70/person
5 people: £60/person
for a one day course.
I can offer 4 places in my car for car sharing to get to Skye from Glasgow and back.
I would like to do Inn Pinn this summer as I am aiming to finish the Munros this year. However the exact date doesn't really matter, it is open for discussion.

Apology for the late reply, I have been travelling to date. Looks like there is interest so I will get in touch with a few guides, see what dates they can offer and will post here as soon as I know.

Just wanted to throw in a couple of helpful tips, if you are interested.
I can recommend a guide, he is an ex forces friend, for doing the ridge. I can forward his details if you haven't found anything else and would like to chat with him. For what it's worth he has a 100% record with clients on the ridge and is not phased by any weather conditions.
It would be advisable to do Sgurr Mhic Choinnich and Sgurr Alasdair at the same time, if you are up to it physically, as it wouldn't cost any more than a day rate anyway. These 3 from the In Pinn route are definitely worth having a guide for, as they are pretty tricky, but a guide would take out the risk and treble the fun.
Feel free to PM me if you are interested.
We did the In Pinn and had 3 glorious days on the ridge last week, factor 50 all day.
You'll love it.
