Cuillin Traverse

Wexford / Tullow trip June 2010

A successful traverse of the Black Cuillin Ridge in Skye was completed by Micheál and Colette supported by a superb team of ‘sherpas’, Ann, Pauline, Michael and David. Aonach Eagach, in Glencoe, done in both directions was a good warm up en route travelling North. Numerous recci walks were done on the Black Cuillin Ridge and the group climbed the Inaccessible Pinnacle, some twice! Day 2 of ridge attempt was poor weather, making the traverse a bigger challenge.

Hi all, Just wanted to post a message regarding the June BBQ! Sylvia has been kind enough to take on the job of organising this years BBQ and seems to be calling in all sorts of favours to ensure this years party will surpass all of our previous efforts! A beautiful walk along the coast is planned for Saturday with a less strenuous visit to the breathtaking Saltee islands planned for Sunday. Lovers of seafood are in for a special treat this year! A text and also an e-mail with all the details will be sent around in the usual way when booking is required but if you need to mark it in your calender then its the 26 and 27 of June! See you there!
