Cuillin Ridge An Dorus to Coir' a' Tairneilear

Walk Summary
Striding Edge, Sharpe Edge and Crib Goch. All classic ridge walks
Bidein Druim nan Ramh summit
and all within the aspirations of the capable hill walker. The difference with the An Dorus to Coir' a' Tairneilear section of the Cuillin Ridge is that it has one Munro and three difficult to access Corbett Tops of Munro, which I reckon are out of reach of the average hill walker unless you have someone in the party with mountaineering skills.

Iain Gallagher of Kendal Mountaineering Services was that man for us. Here is his blog report.
To start with  there is the initial 3¼ mile walk from Glen Brittle YH to gain the ridge at An Dorus, taking us 2½ hours. We then made a small diversion continuing the ascent to the right to bag Sgurr a'Ghreadaidh the first Munro of the day in an effort to make the next day a little easier (and one less summit for tomorrow after going up The Inaccessible Pinnacle), before returning to An Dorus and on to the second and final Munro of the day - Sgurr a'Mhadaidh.

Sgurr Bairnich and Bruach na Frith behind
So that is the easy part of the day done. Ahead of us are three rarely visited Corbett Tops of Munro and probably the most challenging summit Bidein Druim nan Ramh North Top missing out on Corbett Top status by just 1m of prominence, but taking nearly 1 hour to cover the 0.06 miles from the parent summit of Bidein Druim nan Ramh. 
There is a 24 hour challenge called The Cuillin Round where these summits have to be completed without use of ropes to have any chance of completing the challenge, but that was not for us. So one roped up-climb 3 abseils down, including 2 off Bidein Druim nan Ramh and an exposed scramble to the abseil station and a final roped down climb in to the Tairneilear Gap made for probably one of the best days you are likely to have on the hill - if you have a good head for heights. For me the roped up parts were the most comfortable given that because we were roped up with secure belays the exposure and consequences of a slip were not so acute. The rest of the time there was still plenty of exposure requiring great care and focus of mind.
Tired legs walking out down Coire na Creiche
Having safely reached the Tairneilear Gap all that remained was the down walk back to the second vehicle parked at the Fairy Pools car park. Only 3 miles but taking 2½ hours. "All that remained..." is of course tongue in cheek because from the Tairneilear Gap is a scree descent from hell down Coir' a' Tairneilear and the final long walk down Coire na Creiche following the River Brittle passed The Fairy Pools.
A total of 8 miles in 11 hours with nearly 1500m of ascent all this with a near perfect blue sky, light winds and hot sun, leaving us knackered but exhilarated, hoping we had saved enough energy for tomorrows route up The Inaccessible Pinnacle.

The Broughton Marilyns

Walk Summary
First summit of Clover Law on left, higher snow covered summits
in distance from walkers car park near Shepherds Cottage.
Not quite the winter mountaineering I had planned for this trip when I first polled the hill walking community to share the cost of a mountain guide to be roped up on an icy ridge between Munros. Or in the absence of company - donning crampons and ice axe attempting less challenging Munro routes within my own skill set and capabilities.
Plan was to head for Schiehallion but following Storm Doris, abandoned that idea due to unlikelihood of van being able to navigate minor road to car park on way to Strath Fionan. So Plan B or is it C or even D to base myself at Crianlarich YH and do maybe Beinn Ime, Vorlich & Narmain has also been abandoned due to wife's ill health back home. Was just a cold that we both acquired from our gran-daughter but where mine seems to have been blown away somewhere in the Pentland Hills, hers seemed to be taking a real hold, not clearing up and clearly in need of some TLC form yours truly.
Immensely disappointing but hey ho - "A man's got a do what a man's gotta do". Not sure how many winters I have to go out above the Munro snowline but this ain't going to be one of them.
As it turned out Doris managed a massive dump of snow south of Edinburgh including the Broughton Hills and provided some challenging winter conditions which in essence encapsulated everything I get out of hill walking:-
  • Purpose - Well it is a walk with defined objectives in terms of route to follow and peaks to visit.
  • Challenge - At 11 miles planned with over 1100m of ascent certainly qualifies in my book as something that is challenging enough. The route included all three Marilyns all of which are above 500m and therefore Donald Deweys as well as four further 500m summits making seven Donald Deweys in all.
  • Adventure - Not in the terms of being life threatening but in terms of not knowing for sure the outcome, especially with the inclusion of knee deep snow for much of the route, though in many ways the snow helped by infilling the gaps between the heather on the steep(ish) descents It has to be said however that the the horseshoe nature of the route left a simple escape route by descending left at any point down to The John Buchan Way, mitigating much of the risk
  • Fulfilment - In some respects the fulfilment part is well "self fulfilling" but is simply a specific days planned route within a particular trip plan which is just one of many trips for the year ahead all geared to completing a larger more challenging task of visiting all 1556 GB Marilyns, over the coming years. Therein lies the scope and scale of the purpose which offers the probability of not completing where success is not guaranteed and no chance of fulfilment without a lot of hard work, focus and commitment.
Shepherd hut at Stobo Hopehead on way down Penvalla.
Overlooked by Green Law and Broughton Heights.
Starting late meant daylight hours were limited and actually involved some decision making to take place for me to ignore my rule to be always heading down hill before it got dark. Experience built up over recent years enabled me to weigh up the situation and complete the final Marilyn as dusk was falling whilst obviously feeling really tired. On the face of it fool hardy but in my mind no.
Returning to the van wet and tired with enough energy, after fuelling up at Moffat chippy, to drive home overnight.
Because of horse shoe nature of route plenty of options for exit route down to John Buchan Way from most peaks at any time but not required.Overall achieved ambitious route more or less as planned except for easier ascent following wall then path through heather to fence west of Clover Law and a more direct descent down Trahenna Hill.

Whitehope & Windlestraw Laws

Walk Summary
The first and as it will turn out the only time we will venture above 2000' during this weeks trip with Simon, Marilyn bagging in Area 28 south of Edinburgh.
Simon is just a blur vaulting across Glentress Burn
The plan was to park near Blackhopebyre and after going up Windlestraw Law and it's nearby SW Top to then pick off the nearby Whitehope Law on the other side of the road with a short up and downer.
With Windlestraw Law being the main Marilyn above 2000' and hence a Graham, as well as a Donald it occurred to me on the journey to the start point we might not feel like doing the second part of the walk. Easily sorted do it first - that way there will be no chance that what although not a Marilyn, with it's higher than 2000' height and 66m prominence makes it a Donald, New Donald, Graham Top and of course a Simm, we would be leaving it unclimbed.

Following a late start to avoid bad weather forecast in the morning, which did not really materialise, parked in the layby on B709 north of Hillside Know just south of planned start point at Blackhopebyre. The route up Whitehope Law started with a mildly exciting vault across Glentress Water, followed by steep ascent up SE slope, concluded by a long trudge across heather to summit marked by small cairn near bend in fence.
Don't be seduced right up any stalker's paths.
Stay on muddy shooters track
all the way to fence and Windlestraw Law summit
Descended by following fence NE and turning right at first fence junction down Kitty's Clench Burn. From return to 
Blackhopebyre we took the shooters track up Glentress Rig which actually goes all the way Windlestraw summit. We were actually seduced on to what looked a more direct route down a gamekeepers path which left us in the middle of heather and a trudge back to the track adjacent a fence we should have stayed on in the first place. Very windy on the top with summit being SW of fence junction and SW of trig pillar beyond fence junction.
Straight forward navigation in to a strong wind following fence to the SW Top. Rather than return along ascent route took direct route off Bareback Knowe [Windlestraw Law SW Top]  heading downhill and NW. By now it was turning dark but apart from continuing to head down we were given the occasional clue we were heading in the right direction by cars passing below behind Hillside Knowe.
So having started with a mildly exciting vault across Glentress Water ended with a hint of jeopardy descending in the dark. Not really to the experienced hill-bagger, but all part of what is banked over time building up to allow you to deal with anything unexpected. Ably coped with by Simon on what is his first week peak bagging and more pertinently his 4th consecutive days walking, knees aching a bit but other than that coping admirably.

Andrewhinney Ridge

Walk Summary
Yours truly posing on the Donald Dewey - Nowtrig Head
with Marilyn completer Jenny Hatfield 
The Andrewhinney Ridge.
Sounds like a classic route if not it should be. I have had an idea to walk along this ridge since first spotting it from White Comb back in January 2015 and was disappointed to have touched only one end of it neglecting the southerly peaks when, for some reason I cannot remember, I chose to approach Capel Fell from the Southern Upland Way also back in January 2015.
For my next visit back in December 2015 I had devised a circular walk starting from Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall car park but that did not include White Shank and Smidhope Hill. Bad weather, flooded roads and not enough time prevented an attempt on that trip so I resolved to return at some future unspecified date, away from the short winter days, still starting from Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall, but after a nights wild camp to also include White Shank and Smidhope Hill thereby completing all hills along the ridge.
So when Rick Salter suggested an end to end using two cars all these problems disappeared and set the scene for a veritable Donald fest and Graham Top Bonanza involving a total of ten summits eight of which are Simms. Other than suggesting to leave one of the cars at Selcoth Fish Farm I was pleased to leave the route planning to Rick hoping to learn something from both his and his partner Jenny Hatfield's extensive experience gained as the two most recent Marilynists (or are they Marilyneers). Either way they have completed all 1556 GB Marilyns back in September 2016. Only the 9th and 10th people to achieve this, the first couple and for Jenny the notable achievement of being the first lady.
Just the one Marilyn I thought but was surprised to hear Rick suggest doing Capel Fell.

"I've already done that one" said I. 
Rick & jen complete their summit rituals on Capel Fell
Makes my log on www.peakhunter.com look weak
But of course so have Rick & Jen. Apart from the reasoning to do it anyway, because it was there and because it would add to the years bagging total under www.hill-bagging.co.uk algorithms the method in the 'madness' was that it left the option open, if we made good enough progress, to carry on up West Knowe towards Ettrick Pen. In reality a totally unrealistic plan with day light hours available, but one which the optimist in me readily accepted. In hindsight I get the impression Jenny just went along with this knowing there would not be enough time but left it for us boys to work out for ourselves.
As mentioned earlier leaving my van at Selcoth Fish Farm, little known and not marked on map but remember sign saying was OK after Capel Fell descent, we set off together in one vehicle to Birkhill. Again not marked parking but enough room for one vehicle near farm buildings. With chatting, the ascent up to Herman Law went really quick and apart from the low cloud was an ideal day in with good company. The rest of the day was just a matter of following the fence along the rounded ridge to Bodesbeck Law. From there we could have carried on following the fence to White Shank, however we were all keen to pick off the Donald Dewey Pot Law for little extra navigation work  and very little extra ascent/re- ascent. Like the English/Welsh Deweys not doing the Scottish Donald Deweys but in reality I am, suspect the same is the case for Rick & Jen.
After stopping for a quick snack at the sheepfold in the col NW of Potburn we returned to the fence via Potburn Rig having decided there would not be enough time for West Knowe etc.
After Capel Fell we briefly split up so Rick & Jen could descend via the 2nd Donald Dewey of the day - Broken Back. As for me I had already been to Broken Back so descended via Sailfoot Law, who knows one day I may be looking to complete the sub-Donald Deweys!!!
In my opinion a Classic Route, including Pot Law & Broken back a total of twelve summits.
The true classic route though would include the Etrick Pen ridge and five extra summits. No surprises that was the route used by Mr Hillbagger himself, Rob Woodhall way back in August 1991 logged under RHW "Horseshoe of all the Ettrick Donalds from Ettrick Pen to Herman Law"

Cauldcleuch Head & Greatmoor Hill

Walk Summary
Greatmoor Hill ahead. End of track on SE flank of Balderston
Hill. Through gate and head diagonally right to fence
So pleased I did not stick to yesterday's plan and walk this route yesterday. Again had planned 3 routes but only had time for two so after Blackwood Hill chose Roan Fell in what were really dreary conditions with low cloud and very damp almost drizzle.
What a difference a day makes with weather being bright and sunny showing off verdant green pastures, ochre/gold hill tops and crisp blue skies.
Ideal hill walking conditions allowing me to attempt route without having to lug  heavy backpack loaded with survival gear.

At nearly 9 miles including two Marilyns, one of which is a Grahamwith no running water off the tops to be found  should have taken some water with me for hydration and aid to digest "Scooby Snacks". Must admit was starting to feel really tired on descent of Cauldcleuch Head, which involved a fair bit of re-ascent over unclassified hills (fail to qualify under 30m TUMP prominence criteria) of Muckle Land Knowe towards Little Land Knowe, Crossbow Hill, Hind Knowe and Dod Hill. It did occur to me to suggest a new category called sub-TUMPs however this has already been suggested and rejected by the Hill-bagging fraternity under the amusing acronym STUMP!
A cracking circular easy to navigate route basically hand-railing the wire fence all the way round.
Weather also provided ideal conditions for photos providing a great photo commentary of the route. In addition freezing temperatures helped by hardening the ground mitigating what would have been extremely boggy conditions particularly on approach to and descent from Coldcleuch Head summit
