How do you arrange such weather all the time?

Wondered when you were going to get round to these ones.
I really don't like some of your pictures - ie the ones with dangles over big drops

Fantastic stuff and you appeared to have struck lucky with the weather. Reading your report I can see that having a guide gave you confidence...this may be the way I go when I get round to the ridge.
Well it looks like 8 or 9 more weekends should see you to the end of this magical journey, have you a picked out your last one yet...Ben More or Ladhar Bheinn? You planning to compleat before winter?
Now if i get them Mullardoch, Ullapool and Skye Munros done I should be just about level pegging with you...and looking at your munro map would have the same hills to climb.
ps had to laugh at your quip about getting fit

The photos are spectacular and the outcome of all that effort well worth the investment of both time and money. All in all an Incredible 5 days and timed to perfection weather wise

ps...having a guide and insight to the Black Cuillin is crucial, be it for the whole trip or at least parts of the adventure. I was lucky and still am lucky to have an experienced friend and guide to bounce ideas off and have come along, though he likes to leave me to it for many sections
Are you going to be returning for more?

Alan & me used Paddy for the Inn Pin and he was great for us.

Well done - very enjoyable article with loads of great pictures!
