Cuillin Ridge Traverse - Isle of Skye

The Cuillin Ridge Traverse on the Isle of Skye is widely considered to be the finest mountaineering expedition in the British Isles. The ridge runs for nearly 8 miles and involves over 10,000 feet of ascent, much of it involving scrambling with some sections of rock climbing and abseiling. Completing an uninterrupted traverse ranks high among many mountaineers' aspirations.

Snowdonia Climbing offers a 5-day guided programme involving 2 days spent preparing and acclimatising on sections of the ridge before completing a 2-day South to North traverse with a planned bivouac midway. An extra day is kept in hand for flexibility and to maximise chances of success given the vagaries of the weather.

The traverse is a significant undertaking suitable only for those with a good level of fitness. Traverse aspirants must be comfortable with exposure and have previous scrambling experience.

Though transport is not included in the tour, it may be possible to arrange collection and drop-off en route by the instructor.

Our base will be the Glenbrittle Campsite which allows quick and easy access onto the South end of the Cuillin Ridge. Snowdonia Climbing will provide a communal tent facility including stoves and kitchenware as well as smaller personal sleeping tents for use in the campsite and for the bivouac on the ridge itself.
