More climbing...

The last few days I have managed to get out climbing again with Darren. Making the most of the dry spring weather we have managed to get some bouldering and trad climbing done.

This past Friday (14th April 2017) we headed to Wolfcrag. A bouldering crag in Bridge of Allan. Here I climbed 11 problems between f3 and 6b.

Then today (17th April 2017) we headed to Cambusbarron Quarry for a session of trad.

Here we managed to tick off:
Not Easy Contract E1 5b
Easy Contract HVS 5b
The Doobie Brothers E1 5b
Gobi Roof E2 5c

The Souter...

This Monday just passed (10th April 2017) I managed to get out for my first days rock climbing of the year. Myself and Darren decided to head East to chase the sun and leave the wind and rain in the West. We decided to head to the Souter.

Spent more time on the move and enjoying the sunshine but ticked off two routes.

The Ordinary Route HVS 5a on The Souter sea stack.

The Eastern Arete, Severe, at Fast Castle Head.
