This will be my final report as the 2 previos days was a complete was out. Friday the dreaded friday came and the inn pinn was calling for us to climb it if you dare. With every step i was making from the car my nerves was getting the better of me telling me don't do this don't do this i said Bo**cks i'm doing it. After i guess 3/4 hours we reached the inn pinn

The photo is not blured its the weather

After gettin helmet and harness on thankfully no queue we headed upwards and onwards up the inn pinn. At the very start i thought this is nout you having a laugh but then the first bit of exposure came and i thought CRICKEY get ME DOWN. Eventually i had the bottle to carry on and eventually made the summit :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D 8) 8) 8) . The next bit was getting down

Nor him


I found with the inn pinn its all about foot work where to place your feet and the main thing for me anyway was that you could not see the drops as the weather as you can gather was virtually white paper work. I did enjoy doing the inn pinn and seriously considering doing it again in Sept when i finnish the 4 i missed out on but only if its a clear day :lol: :lol: :lol: THAT BE RIGHT :lol: :lol: :lol: Pigs might fly :lol: :lol: :lol:

Is it only Skye that is getting this unseasonable wet cold spell at the moment?

Hi mate

Great effort on all 3 days out. With your luck with the Scottish weather, were you expecting anything less :lol: ?
