Sgurr Dearg - Inaccessible Pinnacle

Height:986 m
3235 ft
Sgurr Dearg, or the Inaccessible Pinnacle as it is better known is the Munro on Skye that everybody wants to climb. There are no difficulties at all on this mountain, until you get to the final 100 yards. This leaves you a two-pitch 'difficult' graded climbing to reach the final summit, with typically an abseil down the other side.
Coupled with the imposing exposure on this final section, you really better know what you are doing. Everybody wants to do this peak, you will be queuing in summer.
There are sections on the main Cuillin ridge where the compass becomes unreliable due to local variations in the magnetic field; take care with your map reading.
