well done wilkie, does a two day traversse really count ??? :lol: :lol: :lol:
only kidding, this time last year planning for an attempt at the ridge was all i was thinking of, a couple of guys in my club had done it a few years ago, and another attempt ended in a helicoptered rescue :shock: , we decided on a one day attempt to keep weight to a minimum. being my first time on skye i was overawed by the cullin mountains like nothing i had seen, completing the traversse is the best thing ive done walking wise ever. anyway well done and welcome to the club :wink:

We were extremey lucky with the weather- even the guide said i was rare that he saw two consecutive days of wall to wall sunshine on the Ridge :D

Dooterbang - am afraid I am not sure what the music is - just matched it on the Youtube music match and it fitted this in as i was the same length as vid
