TD Gap: A Bit More Info

See first photo to show position of loose boulders in relation to the abseil in to the gap. Climber exiting by the severe as used on ridge traverse, belayer looks to be on the said blocks.

First photo annotated by Emily Jones who also added, ” I didn’t commit my weight to the rocks and they slid, with the scree and smaller lodging boulders falling down the slope towards the East. very scary! A lot of caution needed when navigating these boulders.”

Please share thanks to Adrian Trednall of All things Cuillin for the words.

Be safe !


Some consider this the hardest part of the Cuillin traverse, particularly in the wet. From the bottom of the gap, climb the north side via a large block and corner to a break on the left side at 30 feet. Continue straight up, passing a bulge on either side, to easier ground.

Thanks to Adrian Trednall for passing on the information
