Sample Course outline
Day 1 - A day for lovers of short walks, after introductions and some planning we will pick a route that involves the most scrambling and the least walking possible!
Day 2- A day to get technical, ideally take Collies route onto the Cioch, this is the best lunch spot on Skye and will involve some intricate ropework in amazing surroundings.
Day 3- Get ridgey with it! We’ll go find a lovely exposed section of the ridge. Classic sections can include An Doras to Bruach Na Frithe.
Day 4- Finish with a classic, we’ll aim to do a bigger route, something like the Dubh slabs. Putting all our skills together and end on a high note. Routes and days can be changeable to suit the weather and your ability.
