Cuillin Ridge Traverse
The Cuillin ridge traverse is simply the best mountaineering challenge in the UK. The difficulty of the ridge and complexity of route-finding makes the use of a guide a good idea, especially if you're short on time or knowledge. You'll need a good combination of fitness and scrambling ability to complete two demanding days and an overnight bivouac on the ridge. We work with folk over a minimum of 3 days through the process of a traverse attempt, single day attempts are possible for the extremely fit though only when the conditions are perfect.
