It has certainly been hot in Scotland (or should that be for Scotland) in the last few weeks but I think that is finally over as I sit in Fort William with the rain pouring. We finished off the good weather yesterday with a great day in Glen Nevis, Climbing, swimming in the river and then down to the tavern to see Charles Cran Cronbie play. The following photos are a random selection of mainly climbing shots from the last couple of weeks as I have havent really been taking many photos for once.
Matt climbing the second pitch of the brilliant “Agags Groove” high on Buachille Etive Mor. (Amy and Gemma below)
Gemma Brierly leading the third pitch of Agags grooveSusie, Hannah and I climbed January Jigsaw which crosses Agags. which meant lots of hilarity on Belay ledges (I think there was 7 of us on one ledge!) Life is hard when you go climbing with two lovely ladies!
Amy “Climbings okay I suppose” Kincaid without her kayak on Agags groove
The amazing Rannoch Wall of Buachille Etive Mor looking over Rannoch Moor.
Then it was off to the Etive – Hannah jumping into the upper pool of Triple step. The last few weeks have been full of swimming in rivers more than anything else!
Adrian and Matt, Underwater in the Etive.
The Kings house – free camping, good food and good beer – what a place to end the day
The loch A’an basin of the Cairngorms. I bumped into Graham Dawson on the way over to check out the crags – hes in there somewhere on the big square topped buttress.
Well thats all for now. Time to start using my camera more again now though still busy at work and the rain does look like its set it!
