May Madness part 2

Thought I would throw some more photos up while I have a bit of time.  Winter does not seem to have left the Highlands quite yet but there has still been some stunning days.  I have been spending quite a bit of time on Skye for work and play with a few mad dashes back home or elsewhere.Clac-Glas I drove up to Skye after lunch one day and went for a quick solo along the the Clac Glas Blabheinn traverse.  Above – The summit of Clac  Glas with Blabheinn beyond.IMG_4613 The great prow of Blabheinn.  Its awesome to revisit places I havent been in years.  I climbed the crack up the prow with Rasta Gav in 2002 – seems like yesterday.IMG_4628 There are some views in Scotland that never get old.  Stepping out the van at Elgol as the sunsets.  IMG_4647 I was back on Skye with Adventure Training Scotland (the MOD) working the last couple of days of a Rock Skills course with Calum Musket and Max Hunter.  Great fun in a great location.  Above – Calum on the classic “Integrity” with two of the lads.IMG_4649 Max getting ready to get of the Cioch.IMG_4660 Calum and Max sorting the ropes after a fairly wild group ascent of the Inn Pinn.IMG_4669 What to do after a damp day in the hills?  Calum leads the way into the fairy pools.IMG_4692 I had an unexpected free day on Skye yesterday (not technically May I know) so Miles and I headed out to slay one of his dragons – Pinnacle Ridge of Sgurr Nan Gillean.  IMG_4708 Miles cruising up the upper part of Pinnacle ridge with some other climbers just approaching the abseil behindIMG_2048This morning Hannah, Miles and I headed out for a quick blast down the Inchree Canyon.  Hannah on the big jump.
