North-east from Sgurr a'Mhadaidh.
~ Mhadaidh has four tops, the full traverse of which tests the boundary between scrambling and climbing. I have done it, but the south top was sufficient this time.
Cuillin Central - on Sgurr a'Ghreadaidh.
In. Pinn., east ridge.
~ That roped party was already on the route when I arrived, so I walked some way up an Stac and had my lunch. Half an hour later they were quite near the top, so I went back across and set off up the ridge, which normally takes me about four minutes.
I'm not sure why I felt embarrassed at reaching the top at the same time as them, but I did, and tried to sidle off back down unnoticed. Maybe it felt as if I was trying to show off, a cardinal sin in my upbringing.
