Ghreadaidh and Banachdich

Munros: Sgùrr a' Ghreadaidh, Sgùrr na Banachdich

Date walked: 15/10/2021

Time taken: 7 hours

Distance: 11km

Ascent: 1150m

With Skye Adventure guide John Smith, and George and Micheal, set off up the path from the Youth Hostel, and followed up to An Dorus, helmeted up before heading onto the loose from the corrie floor as there was two people ahead, the top part in to An Dorus was rocky and there was some ice around but clearly visible. Views were terrific and we roped up and headed along to the summit of Ghreadaidh, where we were later joined by one of the two chaps seen earlier. After discussion continued along the ridge to Banachdich, I had never been on this part of the ridge before and it is nicely interesting, route finding in poor conditions could be challenging but we had good weather and an excellent guide so the trip along the ridge was great fun. Top of Banachdich is a great viewpoint, the descent into Coir an Each was on loose stones and went steadily, then just a boggy bit to get back tyo the good path back to the YH, forgot to turn on my GPS for the first 750m.
