Inaccessible Pinnacle Panorama, Cuillin Ridge

This is a view taken from the base of the Inaccessible Pinnacle and just after soloing it and abseiling off from it during our 2007 attempt of the traverse of the Cullin Ridge. Thats our rope you can see there and for the record, this rope had been cut to the exact length of what was needed for this abseil, (saving weight) knowledge of this length being gained through previous attempts and recces, and in fact, when it was thrown down, it did not reach the ground, and only did so when weighted with our bodies. I was quite glad to have eaten so much flapjack on the route so as to be sure to reach the safety of the Ridge again.
