smoreda H 26 Jan - Great line. Sheltered from S-SW winds. Continued to main ridge and scrambled to West top of Bidein. There we were caught out by hail/snow squall and improvised an abseil for the Cuillin full value.

GHawksworth H 26 Jan Solo O/S Great fun! quite slippy and wet most the way up but came down the scree slope on the NW side. We looked at heading to the main ridge but snow and winds came. Winter arrived as we headed down.

cbyers 26 Jan Solo O/S Great wide line up to the ridge with some fun slab scrambling to start. Wet and windy but essentially summer conditions, and good visibility too. From the ridge we continued on to the west top of Bidean where we were surprised by a lot of graupel falling in just a couple of minutes, so we decided to abb off rather than tackle the basalt staircases in reverse!

eddbeale 30 Dec, 2018 Solo dnf On reaching the ridge, the wind became a major problem, making standing on the ridge extremely hard. Decided at this point to traverse around and descent to easier terrain. Met the other group, who were just reaching the top of the slab, and then contoured around to the meet the stream (Allt Coir' a' Tairneilear) at ~400m. Followed stream to descend to valley. With Chris Belton. Keiran and Adrian in a separate group.

mountainbagger 14 Sep, 2010 Solo Got most of the way up, but very strong winds and thunder and lightening forced a quick retreat back down the same line - was worried that getting to top would be inviting a lightening strike if we didn't get blown off beforehand! Good up to that point though, especially as it has a very easy, scenic and quick approach past the fairy pools.
