Thank you Outdoor Duo for connecting us back in 2015 ... 3 years on we're now a happily married couple! V&M x

I have met somebody to share with.

This has been a great group for friendships and great outdoor experiences as well as for dating. I now have a life partner, and have recommended OD to others who've joined. My heartfelt thanks to you! xx

Lizzied - Well if it was later in the year then you may have found some others up there as well, As loose plans have been juggled into the air, its certainly in my focus. hope you manage to get someone to join you.

I would also like to do the main Cuillin ridge, but not this year. May is definitely the best month in terms of weather, and the midges should be less of an issue than later in the year.
I assume you would be aiming to do a two-day traverse with an overnight bivvi high on the ridge? Personally, I would want to do have already done a lot of the route previously on day walks; I have scrambled some sections of the main ridge, but none of the harder parts. Even with hiring a guide, I wouldn't advise anyone to attempt the full ridge without some prior knowledge of the route, unless you have rock climbing experience or are a very good scrambler! I would also want near-perfect weather.

I did it independently a year ago with one other over two days and an overnight bivy. Doing the whole ridge requires climbing skills, and certainly a confidence with rope work for climbing up some of the passages and for a few necessary abseils. However, the local guides will tailor trips to the skills, experience and fitness of a group and can take you out for a good day scrambling, avoiding sections that need roping for going up or down. It’s a stunning place and whatever you do there Lizzied, I’m sure you will love it and create some unforgettable memories.

Hi Lizzie. I would certainly be very interested in an opportunity to go there. I didn't initially respond as, from my limited knowledge of the route, I had assumed (and Stephen has confirmed!) that there are sections well outside my experience. However, if you do end up doing something less ambitious than a complete traverse that would be of interest, if you would put up with me!

It's something I'd love to do but not sure I'm skilled enough. I've done some climbing and have rope skills but no knowledge of the Cuillin ridge Chat to you on the ski trip? x

I sent you a personal mail about the ridge.Did you see it?

Have done this independently. Met a couple of guys on my way , who had paid a company to take them up to do the whole thing, in one day?! I wouldn't recommend that. It's worth taking it easy over a couple of days, as mentioned above. beautiful views if you are lucky with the weather. If you have a head for heights and love scrambling, you'll be awesome! Good luck with weather and Have fun.

Thank you for all the valuable comments which I’ve considered carefully x

I've done it over two days with a bivvie on Sg?rr a' Mhadaidh. Bailed on a one day attempt out of Glen Brittle. In retrospect I'd bivvie on Garbh Bheinn the night before, taking maybe only a sleeping and bivvie bag, then go for it at first light. Navigation is tricky in places. You should be confident soloing Diff otherwise it will take too long e.g. soloing Inn Pinn saves a LOT of time. HTH.
