LFTO Review

What makes the Black Cuillin peak of Sgurr Dearg unmissable is a splintered eight metre pillar launching from the main summit. More famously known as the Inaccessible Pinnacle, it’s the only Munro summit that requires unavoidable rock-climbing to achieve. The exposure on its top is truly chilling.

Best route: In Pin’s east ridge is the normal route up, and is graded as a Moderate rock-climb. Which means ropes, skills and climbing experience are required.
