Start at Gars Bheinn and finish at Sgurr nan Gillean. Fantastic! The rock climbing is quite hard if wet.

mop449 7 Sep - Brilliant experience! I've had this as a goal for years and I'm absolutely psyched to get it done. 1 day push, bivvyed halfway up and did it in 11:30hrs ish. Tough day but super worth it. Highlights were the Inn Pinn, Basteirs Tooth (scary to simul climb) and the last hard push for the summit of Gillean. Lowlights were getting lost, queueing for TD, doing TD with heavy backpacks on my front and back (never again) and the slog back to Sligachan in the dark.

Thearlaich worth finding out the route in coruisk side better rock but must know the line, worth asking around about it and checking it out. Coir Lagan side shit rock and nasty slab. Olso abseil but unknown rope length required. Mhadaidh was tricky to say the least ,worth checking out before attempting the traverse. South to North.

David Cooper 26 Jul - 4.45 from Glenbrittle to 21.20 at the Sligachan. Total clag and high winds slowly gave way to better vis and even higher winds after the TD gap. All major summits ticked. Rope out for TD gap abseil and climb (Damon lead), Kings Chimney (Damon lead), In Pinn abseil and Naismiths (my lead). Ran the final hour to make last food orders. Only saw two other people.

Nifty 26 Jun - Left glenbrittle at 04.20. Up onto ridge via Coir’ a Ghrunnda-picked up 4ltrs of water at lochan. Along to Gars-bheinn then back along ridge taking in Sgurr Dubh Mor. Added into TD gap and led out, led kings chimney and soloed In pin/abbed off short side. Shuffled on for a long way in perfect weather until col before Bhasteir Tooth. Seconded Naismiths route and eventually made the top of Sgurr nan Gillean via the window by 22.50. Went back down the way we had come and made the “short pull” back up around the bottom of AmBasteir to the col before the tooth to drop into Fionn Choire to finally emerge at the fairy pools car park at 02.30. Dave leapt onto his bike to get the car and I had a lye down.

Henrike Greuel 11 Jun 2nd dnf We decided to book a guide for the traverse to increase our chances of succeeding. We started in glorious sunshine with a weather forecast of two dry days, but heavy winds. We made good progress and were surpringsly sheltered from the winds at parts of the ridge. Above cloud level it became immediately wet and sadly, we couldn't see much anymore. Unfortunately, shortly before Sgurr a’ Ghreadaidh it started to heavily rain and in combination with heavy winds (30 miles/hour throughout the day) it became slippery and uncomfortable. So we decided to descend after Ghreta and were down 14 hours later. We will come back and do it again!

MJTheobald97 24 Apr Lead O/S One of the best days in the mountains ever... obviously. Set off from Glenbrittle at 7am and made it to Gars Bheinn by 10am via Coir' a' Grunnda. Took 8hrs 15 to get to Glac Mhor where we had stashed some bivy gear the day before. 30m rope proved just long enough for the In Pinn abseil. After a cold night on a popped sleeping mat we set off again at 6am and made it to Gillean by 10:25am so 12hr40 peak to peak. Conditions were pretty much perfect. It was forecast to be sunny but very windy with winds up to 34mph on Tuesday and 47mph on Wednesday but in the end it was probably about max 10mph on Tuesday and apart from a bit of a windy start on Wednesday it was mostly about 15mph. I had 2.5L of water, 6 chocolate bars and a packet of crips on Tuesday and 1.5L of water, 3 chocolate bars and a packet of crips on Wednesday. Loved each of the 4 main rock climbs and found them all easy and enjoyable. Must remember for next time to bring 3 slings, size 4,6,8,10 nuts and size 1.5 cam.

JonLongshanks 10 Apr AltLd O/S We were sipping beers at Armathwaite at 10pm on Monday night, andby 6am the next morning we were starting the drive up to Skye. The spontaneous trips do seem to be the best ones. After arriving at Glen Brittle we walked up with the setting sun, alongside Rachel and Hannah who were joining us on the Gars Bheinn bivvy. Absolute heros who carried our bivy stuff back down the next morning. After a short night we woke to a biting wind. A quick soup and a rock hard banana sent us on our way at 4:30am, moving swiftly by headtorch to coax some heat into our shivering bodies. The night was clear and an inversion lingered below in Coruisk. First light saw us at TD gap, quickly dispatched by Mike who found it much easier than last time in the wet. We'd both done the first half of the ridge before, so it flew by with no hiccups. The rest was a blur in a continuous state of flow. Mike twinged his knee which slowed us a little towards the end, but the sun came out for the final few peaks which was a real treat. We topped out on Gillean after 11h15 peak to peak. Pitched TD gap, King's Chimney, and Naismiths. About 6 abseils and soloed the rest. The conditions were perfect after the wind dropped, cool and dry and not a soul around. The whole experience was inspiring, beautiful, and effortless. A cracking day in the mountains, only wished it kept going.

Missed last orders, although someone mentioned that in reality you can get a pint in the hotel at midnight... More like 2-2.5hrs than 1.5! Lost 2 hours on the Ridge due to Rockfax guide lacking detail on some technical sections inc Am Basteir and the first of the three pinnacles in the mid section. Avoided TD gap to get water at the first spring and missed the chimney to get back onto the ridge, ended up doing some necky soloing on loose rock. Carried 3ltrs and still dehydrated by the end. My knees also need replacing! Recommend bivying near the spring below TD Gap to give a shorter 2nd day. And training! The on-site come-as-you-are approach whilst purist was perhaps a tad silly! Epic day out.

caradoc 27 Jun, 2018 - Gars-bheinn start at 3.45pm. 26.06.18. 3.5 hours walk from Glen Brittle, a bit longer than expected. TD Gap went much easier than anticipated, technically VDif although quite intimidating, polish not a problem. Bivvy at In Pin at 10.45pm. Start at 4.45am. 27.06.18 Good progress until Sgurr a Mhadaidh where we had route finding problems and wasted a lot of time on dead ends. I should have taken a guidebook and would recommend anyone else to do so. More delays at Bidein Druim man Ramh where the way off the second pinnacle was not obvious. Very dehydrated by this time, two litres drunk but we had dropped two more litres at Bruach na Frithe which probably saved the expedition. 30degrees and hot rock was exhausting but we kept going to Sgurr nan Gillean arriving at the top at 3.30pm. Slow back to Sligachan looking for water in the boulder field where we could hear a stream running beneath the rocks. Very pleased to have finally done it.

I should have taken a guidebook and would recommend anyone else to do so. More delays at Bidein Druim man Ramh where the way off the second pinnacle was not obvious. Very dehydrated by this time, two litres drunk but we had dropped two more litres at Bruach na Frithe which probably saved the expedition. 30degrees and hot rock was exhausting but we kept going to Sgurr nan Gillean arriving at the top at 3.30pm. Slow back to Sligachan looking for water in the boulder field where we could hear a stream running beneath the rocks. Very pleased to have finally done it.

nickhewitt 6 Jun, 2018 AltLd Left Coruisk at 4.15 am. Gars Bheinn 5.45. Full traverse to Sgurr nan Gillean in 10 hours dead taking in all 11 Munros, TD Gap (abseil/led out), Kings Chimney (Charlie led), Inn Pinn (soloed/abseil), Naismith's on the Bhasteir Tooth (led). Avoided using rope everywhere else and took everything head on. One nav confusion meant we did Thearlaich before Alasdair, so had to do it again. Excellent conditions - bone dry, very warm but mostly overcast. Took 2.5 l water each - barely enough. Packed light but should have been lighter. Tough 4 hour slog back to Coruisk with sore feet. A fantastic day. I was very happy to repeat it after 30 years and especially pleased to do it with my son.

Hugh Simons 29 May, 2018 - Left Glenbrittle at 2.30am, walked in by moonlight to Gars-bheinn in 12 degree heat, madness. 10 hrs 15 mins end to end on the ridge, about 15.5 hours Glenbrittle to Sligachan. Did all 11 munros and all the classic climbs (led TD gap, 2nd Kings Chimney, Soloed Inn Pinn and Led Naismith's), but the biggest obstacle was the heat! Took 2 L each which was enough, but was glad to fill the bottles with snow after Sgurr na Banachdich. Undoubtedly the best mountain day I've ever had. The scrambling and interest is maintained along the whole length from the get-go. I'd only done small sections of the ridge before on separate occasions, and 5 of the 11 munros were new, so we were really chuffed with the time given the heat and newness of a lot of it. David had never been on the ridge before either! Breakfast the next day was heavenly.

robahalliday 26 May, 2018 Lead dnf First attempt at the travese but alas we were too slow compounded by a couple of nav / route finding errors. South to north - made it over to Bealach Corie na Banachdaich to bivy out. Route finding errors on the second day cost us the glory! All errors focused around the three tops of Mhadaidh. Firstly roped up for the delicate slab around a big block before you descend to the three tops which cost us time (easier option would have been to pop round to the west and backdoor the short gully to the start of the ridge). Secondly the rockfax mini-guide describes taking a right path to avoid the 'horrendous looking' initial face of the third top (first you come to on a S-N Traverse) of Mhadaidh we followed this way too long down a ramp into a dead-end - probably cost up 200/300 meters of vertical. You only need skip 20 meters to the right to gain an easier looking wall. Tired bodies and late in the day meant we had to bail off Sgurr an Fheadain. All good fun (albeit type 2 at points). Fantastic and memorable weekend. Will be back fitter, more experienced and with a better sense of direction to give it another crack soon!

Awoke to mist, but carried on via GPS. Chickened out of long side climb out of the TD Gap, so reached summit of Alasdair via chimney. Left pack on someones ledge and soloed King's Chimney, which was trickier than expected with poor feet and a couple of awkward moves. Returned to pack via ledge and climbed An Stac directly for the first time ever, which was much better than the solar oven slog of the brown ramp. Skipped In Pinn due to the amount of occupants. Bad timing really and everyone on it seemed very happy and am certain they would have accommodated me as well as they could. With the ridge now clear of mist, I carried on in the usual way but this time faced Bidean Druim nan Raam for the first time in twenty odd years. Went well, keeping a close eye on the guide but abbed into the bealach off the main summit as the down climb looked too awkward with big pack. Passed the Am Caistel summit on the correct, left side which avoided the crawl but again abbed into the bealach awkwardly due to anchor location and heavy pack. Spent the night on a windy and dewy Bruach Na Frithe summit. Called it a day early the following morning and descended into Glen Brittle.

gav 29 May, 2017 Lead Rain stopped around 5am Sunday, so left Glenbrittle at 06:25 to give it a chance to dry out. Gars Bheinn for 09:35. Guide on Inn Pinn suggested weather coming in earlier than expected on second day, so pushed as far as we could on day 1. Bivi just after an Caisteal at 22:00, having spent half an hour getting water at An Dorus. Left bivi at 04:15 Monday morning and made Gillean at 07:05. Sligachan at 09:55.

Left Glen Brittle at 2.45, got to the start for 6. Finished at 5.50pm, 2.5 hours back to Slig. Took 40m of 6mm for abs, this seemed a perfect length. Missed TD climb, Kings Chimney and due to not being able to find/didn't look very hard, didn't do Am Bastier. Soloed Inn Pinn. If you avoid the TD and head down the gully follow the scree back up to the right, don't try and rejoin to the left near an amazing Bivvy cave, it's a desperate knife edge! Do the scramble up An Stac, as said before the scrambling on that section is superb.

Mark Collins 8 May, 2017 Lead dnf Started via the 9ish am boat this time and managed to climb out of the TD Gap, being the first time I’d tried it. Sadly I had to drop my sack and haul it up which was something I was really hoping to avoid. Managed to get all the way to the bealach between Sgurr Mhich Choinnich and An Stac via Hart's Ledge before night fall and shiver bivvied, temp around zero until setting off again at 630am. A successful on sight of the poorly protected short side of the In Pinn was a welcome start to the day after virtually no sleep. As ever in good weather on the Cuillin you never get to attempt a rock climbing section without an audience. This time it was a Swiss fella who’d run up from Glen Brittle campsite before breakfast, his enthusiasm and photos were most welcome though. We managed to reach the top of Sgurr na Banachdich before cloud came in and made navigating a nightmare, so we bailed down a horrible descent of very steep and thin scree along with dry stream beds (my right thigh is still burning).

Almost bailed when we ran out of water (2l per person is not enough if it's hot!) but luckily had some supplies stashed at the Bastier Tooth to re-energise for the final push. Never done anything like it and v glad my knees held out as would likely have had to wait years for another opportunity. Kit list: food, 2l water, waterproof, softshell, head torch, light insulated jacket, 1 sling (for harness), belay plate & 30m of skinny rope for the abs. Should have skipped on the insulated jacket and taken and extra litre of water (and extra suncream!) otherwise think we got it right.

Mark Collins 27 May, 2016 Solo Started at 3am from Glen Brittle, warm (topless) half moon lit (no headtorch) ascent of Gars Bheinn, reached the summit at 6am. Bypassed Caisteal a' Garbh-choire, Sgurr Dubh an Da Bheinn, Sgurr Dubh Mor and Thearlaich-Dubh Gap. Ascended Sgurr Alasdair via the chimney and south west ridge. Descended Sgurr Thearlaich via the Coruisk side. Bypassed Sgurr Mhic Choinnich via Hart’s Ledge. Ascended Sgurr Dearg via the Brown Ramp and the Inaccessible Pinnacle via its east ridge. Ascended all the middle peaks until Bidein Druim Nan Ramh, which I bypassed on the left. Ascended all the other peaks until the Bhasteir Tooth and Am Basteir, which I bypassed on the north side. Left pack at Bealach a’Basteir and ascended Sgurr nan Gillean via it’s west ridge, reaching the summit at 7:30pm (13.5 hours on the ridge), and then descended the same way and reached Sligachan at 10:45pm (19.75 hours door to door), just in time for a pint of lemonade (couldn’t face a beer or food, had any been available). Highlights:- Reaching a deserted Inaccessible Pinnacle and standing on the summit. Having cuckoo calls as a virtually constant companion. Not getting caught in any bottlenecks. The early morning light on the first part of the ridge. Seeing red deer on the ascent of Gars Bheinn. Meeting other parties, one of which was from Adlington (small World). Lowlights:- Not being fit enough. Not including more of the ridge. Topping out on Gillean in a cloud. Lessons Learned:- I took too much food and consumed 2 Bagels, a bag of Cashews and raisins, KP Honey Cashews, half Churitso, 3 Baby Bels, 3 Double Deckers, and 3 litres of water which I only started drinking once I’d reached the first summit, having consumed a litre and a half in the campsite beforehand. I should have taken more easily accessible foods, perhaps cut up Bagels and Churitso beforehand and bag, so I can pocket. Must train for this in future, as I was physically unable to take in all that I should have and finish in a reasonable time. I only used the rope to abseil off the Inaccessible Pinnacle which makes me think that I could possibly make an attempt without one in future. Miscellaneous:- Picked up a tick nymph probably on the ascent of Gars Bheinn. It was a beautiful but warm day and thankfully some high cloud appeared at the Northern end of the Cuillin in the afternoon.

Left tent at 5am. 2nd attempt to do it in a day and so close this time. Slept in the bealach of Gars-bheinn, did 9 munros and all the tops along the main ridge from Garbh-bheinn to Bruach na Frithe, exiting off Sgurr a' Bhasteir at 10pm as we didn't fancy finding our way up the ledges onto The tooth, Am Basteir and continuing up to Gillean in the dark. Will bring a small rack next time to do Naithsmith's Route. Collie's Ledge saved us loads of time instead of doing Kings Chimney this time and abseiled into the TD gap and took the scree slopes across to the West ridge and bealach of Alasdair as I personally hated the climb out of the gap last time. Soloed the SE ridge including the big toe boulder on top and abseiled off the Inn Pin again which was so cool. The central section of the ridge was the most technically demanding and took a lot of energy to work out. Thanks to the runner in red who came at just the right time to help us find the best way up. Joined a couple of other teams along the way and combined heads to route find. Met a guy in sandals who somehow must have levitated his way along from Gillean. Back next year to get this done with more experience

I was amazed at just how technical the route finding was and soon learnt that that interment knowledge of which way to turn at every other rock was key to success.

Success largely thanks to Conan's route knowledge and the weather being first thing to sort out. We did all the climbs and all the Munro summits. We soloed the Inn pinn. I led the TD gap easily after being stuck there in the snow previously (what a difference a dry day makes.) Conan led King's Chimney (harder on the day, as greasy) and Naithsmith's route, (felt serious at 8 pm after all that un-roped exposure and feeling tired.) Walking back from Bealach a Bheister into Fionn Choire and down to Fairy Pools carpark seemed like a good way off. Shame we had no car there and had to walk back to Glen Brittle campsite. 21 hrs round trip. Simply the best mountain day.

Lost some time working our way over the scree slopes on the South side of Sgurr Dubh Mor, summit 9am. Much easier to go on the other side after Sgurr Dubh an Da Bheinn and come back the same way. Bit of confusion at the TD gap where we met a bunch of lads from York who thought they were on it, scrambled past to find the abseil into the gap off fixed slings. 10:45am. Climb back up pretty tricky in hiking boots and rucksack. Very smooth and polished and only had a limited rack. Managed to get up by way of a half body jam. Very relieved double arm jam at the first break after the crux. Recommend climbing boots. Summited the spectacular Sgurr Alasdair at 12pm then scrambled up and over Sgurr Thearlaich across house roof slabs. Abseiled into the Bealach Mhic Choinnich to Kings Chimney. Climbed in hiking boots but hauled my bag up before belaying Rebecca this time. Much more enjoyable climbing here. Sgurr Mhic Choinnich at 3pm. Skipped An Stac and then soloed the Inaccessible Pinnacle which was awesome. Abseiled off at about 5:30. Quick bite to eat on Sgurr Dearg. Called it a day after Sgurr na Banachdich at 6:45pm. Didn't fancy a bivvy out on the ridge with no bag. Will come back in September to attempt again and probably miss out the climbing so we can go lighter and quicker. Not bad for our first attempt though. Ascended Coir' an Eich and back to the Glen Brittle road.

Climb back up pretty tricky in hiking boots and rucksack. Very smooth and polished and only had a limited rack. Managed to get up by way of a half body jam. Very relieved double arm jam at the first break after the crux. Recommend climbing boots. Summited the spectacular Sgurr Alasdair at 12pm then scrambled up and over Sgurr Thearlaich across house roof slabs. Abseiled into the Bealach Mhic Choinnich to Kings Chimney. Climbed in hiking boots but hauled my bag up before belaying Rebecca this time. Much more enjoyable climbing here. Sgurr Mhic Choinnich at 3pm. Skipped An Stac and then soloed the Inaccessible Pinnacle which was awesome. Abseiled off at about 5:30. Quick bite to eat on Sgurr Dearg. Called it a day after Sgurr na Banachdich at 6:45pm. Didn't fancy a bivvy out on the ridge with no bag. Will come back in September to attempt again and probably miss out the climbing so we can go lighter and quicker. Not bad for our first attempt though. Ascended Coir' an Eich and back to the Glen Brittle road. Luckily managed to catch a lift back to Sligachan Campsite with a really friendly couple from Brazil on tour of UK for their 2 year anniversary

RKernan 8 Apr, 2015 Solo Amazing. 12.5 hours on the ridge. Plenty of snow in the bealachs which was unfortunate as we were in trainers. First half of the day was complete clag, dodged TD gap climb by going up west ridge of Alasdair, which was hairy. Also dodged King's chimney and skirted round Am Basteir on Sligachan side. This last dodge was probably harder than climbing over the thing as it involved loose scree and hard snow with no winter gear. Pointy rocks make half decent ice daggers. A great day. Only met 2 other people all day.

Called it a day and relaxed, ate lunch, took some photos and generally enjoyed the amazing surroundings in the sunshine. Carefully walked back to Glenbrittle and went for a swim.

Probably one of the more serious days out that you can have on the British hills, on account of it being so exposed and in-your-face for just so long and with huge death fall potential awaiting a stumble pretty much at all points of the ridge. Billy led TD gap at 6am, we pitched Inn-Pin and soloed Basteir Tooth (this section was the most confusing on the ridge.) Wall-to-wall sunshine, cooling breeze. 1500 miles round trip from Cornwall over a long weekend. Brilliant stuff, fantastic five star route and a day that will live long in the memory. Cheers Bill.

Andy Clarke 6 Jun, 2002 Lead O/S 6-7 June 2002 with overnight bivvy. A truly memorable route that lived up to all the superlatives. Climbed via TD Gap and King's Chimney, but missed out Naismith's Route due to threatening rain and novices in the party. Unfinished business - a good excuse to do it again! Had glorious weather for first day and a half, but finished in rain. Led all the climbing pitches. Got to bivvy site around 10pm after climbing the Inn Pin in a gorgeous lingering twilight. Others left me to put my feet up while they went to collect the stash and I watched the sun hang above the horizon, sipping Talisker from my hip flask. One of my greatest alcoholic experiences! Thanks to Tommo for his usual excellent logistics and motivational leadership.
