Perhaps the most iconic rock climb in the UK, the Inaccessible Pinnacle has a fairly lowly grade of Moderate but it is harder to imagine a more exposed climb for the grade. The climb follows a thin fin of rock with huge drops down to the loch below. Descent is an obligatory abseil (above) with great views out to the Isle of Rum. With several abseils on the ridge, this is a skill you need to have practiced prior to arriving on Skye. For the timid, the Pinnacle can be missed out by a walk up slabs below it.
