Simply Paul: Since no one made it up the mountain, and it's overdue, I'm archiving this event. Fingers crossed for 2015 perhaps!

Geocache Description:

This series is now very well established; an off-the-beaten-track location that offers visitors a very special experience... Wednesday, 19th of June 2013 from 2pm

As I've always liked islands and collect 'extreme points', Skye and the In Pin are perfect for my 2013 Remote event. It's the hardest to scale Munro and so the one every Bagger wants to Bag!

Meet at the above co-ords at the base of The Inaccessible Pinnacle on the top of Sgùrr Dearg, Black Cuillin Mountains, Isle of Skye from 2pm on Wednesday the 19th of June 2013.

The event is expected to run for an hour (bring sandwiches), unless conditions make staying in such an exposed location risky or deeply damp, in which case the event will be cut short. By attending this event you accept all personal risks. It's in a remote, hard to access and potentially dangerous location high in the Cuillins and should only be attended by experienced mountain cachers, with the right skills and equipment to reach this location. The event owner cannot be held responsible for your safety.

Climbing the InPinn? I hope this will be possible if someone with the right equipment is also attending the event. We could also take on the services of a guide if there's enough interest in doing this - please state your wishes in your Will Attend log and if there's enough people keen, I'll look into this. This link gives you an idea of what's involved.

Further details to follow - I suggest you add this cache to your watch list if interested, as I'll add information as notes on it. There is also

There's a thread about my June 2013 events on the Groundspeak forum and on the GAGB forum.
