4h 57m 7s | Cuillin Ridge Winter Traverse Film

On Monday 26th February 2018, Uisdean Hawthorn set a new record for a winter traverse of Skye’s iconic Cuillin Ridge with a time of 4 hours, 57 minutes and 7 seconds.

Traverse of the Cuillin Ridge on Scotland’s Isle of Skye is widely accepted as Britain’s finest mountaineering challenge.

12 kilometers in length, crossing over 30 summits includings 11 Munros, a one day ascent in Summer is seen as a stern test for the most dedicated mountaineers only.

Winter ascents are much rarer than in Summer, with most parties taking two or three days to complete the route.
