In total contrast to my circuit of Coire na Ciste last week, today was very, very wet in Coire Laggan on Skye. Grahame is completing his Skye Munros with the three around Coire Laggan and the northern three. Today we started up to Inaccessible Pinnacle in reasonable weather but as forecast the rain came in just as we set foot on the climb! Thankfully the wind was not so strong so, despite being very wet, we managed to stay cheery and enjoy the climbing and scrambling.
There was no queue for the Inaccessible Pinnacle! In fact we did not see anyone until we had traversed Sgurr Mhic Choinnich, reached Sgurr Alasdair and we were descending the Great Stone Shoot. Everyone else was far too sensible to be out in the Cuillins! It was nice to see Scott and Dave with their team who were equally soaked through. It might be slightly less wet tomorrow and Grahame says it is better than when he was here last time!
