The Holy Grail of British Scrambling

  • A big challenge but an achievable one for many people with the requisite fitness and the will to succeed.


  • Opinion suggests that less than 10% of those attempting the ridge manage to succeed on their first attempt. Let ATC help balance the odds in your favour. We can offer pre ridge advice and training ideas so that you arrive on Skye ready for action. Logistics can be optimised; food and water can be preplaced to reduce loads carried and increase the chance of success.
