The Inaccessible Pinnacle (often abbreviated to the In Pinn) is the second highest summit in the Skye Cuillin. It is notorious as the most difficult of the Munros, requiring a rock-climb and an abseil (and suitable experience or help from an expert) to complete the ascent. It rises from the summit of Sgùrr Dearg.
