Arcadia – Part 2

Posted by on May 27, 2010 at 1:31 pm

Arcadia E7 (8a), Steall Hut Crag. Got back up to Steall Crag on Monday and Tuesday for a change of scene. I found Arcadia E7 (8a) to be dry so jumped on that again. I last tried this pinkpoint line several years ago and got shutdown. On subsequent visits the top section has always been […]

Admission Denied

On Saturday got back to the Tunnel Walls in Glencoe with Mike Lee. Thankfully the bolts were still in! Really had forgotten how awesome this wall is. Wind was blowing nicely and temp was perfect. Plan was to try Admission F7c+ and get it in a day. I stuck the clips up with aid of […]

Dalriada P3

As planned Mike and I headed back up the Cobbler on Monday under roasting blue skies. Luckily some cloud came in for the grunt work getting up the hill. Still I watched the sauna like sweat drip off my forehead a pool into my glasses. After rigging and a clean top rope of the route […]

Dalriada P2

The weather wasn’t waiting for me to get over recent illness with a cracking forecast of blue skies for the next three days. So as promised headed back up the Cobbler with Michael to try Dalriada. It was a bit of an effort to get up and down and I wanted to do was sleep […]

Life Begins at…

No quite 40, yet… My goal of climbing 8c before I was 30 hasn’t been reached. Since everyone has been saying 40 is the new 30, I’m granting myself a 10 year extension! Had a good birthday around Glen Nevis, one of the first places I climbed outdoors in the mountains and fell in love. […]

Marching in Diving Boots

Posted by on February 19, 2008 at 9:38 pm

Looking over the end of Loch Muick toward Broad Cairn. Sunday 17th February. Since my psyche has been low for climbing and training at the moment it was a refreshing change to get back into the mountains with Lindsey to do some walking. Unsure about cloud cover expected out west we opted instead for east […]

The Fannaich’s

A break in the clouds reveals views down to loch Fannaich. Friday 27th-29th July. This weekend Lindsey and I repeated our journey North making it to Gruinard at a more respectable hour. After checking out Inverewe gardens and relaxing for a bit I coaxed Lindsey into belaying me at Creag Nan Luch for a bit. […]

An Teallach

Lindsey with the first summit of An Teallach behind us. Friday 20th – 23rd July. This weekend I headed north with Lindsey as part one of our two part holiday to do some B&Bing, walking and maybe some climbing in the North West. A late start on Friday didn’t give us much time to spare […]

Meall Garbh and Meall Greigh

Sunday 10th June. I’ve been so focused on projects over the spring that its been nearly three months since my last day walking with Lindsey. Between DIY and projects we’ve missed some glorious days to be out in the mountains. Aware that the year is ticking by we decided we should head out even though […]

Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh

Posted by on April 5, 2007 at 9:26 pm

Sunday 1st April. Its been a while since I was last out in the hills with Lindsey. The forecast for Sunday again looked stunning so I made no hesitation in planning another Munro walk. I was a little wary over our fitness so decided to choose the two accessible peaks of Beinn Dorain and Beinn […]
