This was a guided route with John Smith of Skye Adventure, to do tops I had missed before and to redo one top I wasn't sure about. The day was not the finest having been wet overnight and cloud down to the 600m level but not raining so we set off and went up the Sgumain screes and were at the col in just over 2 hours. Harnesses on and we moved off along to bag Sgurr Sgumain, then across to Sgurr Dubh an Da Bhein, before returning to climb across Sgurr Alasdair, then a little climb up onto Sgurr Thearlaich, before descending the stone shoot, popping back out of cloud just before the corrie floor. A grand day out, no photos because we were in mist, some really greasy rock, but as stated a fine day out, thanks to John and all at Skye Adventure for making it possible
