This weekend the really good weather finally turned up. After a momentary panic on Friday morning I found some climbing partners for both days. First up Joe and I headed out to the island of Canna. I had never considered climbing on Canna before and certainly not for just one day. It was a bit of an early start but well worth it.Early morning light on the Cuillins of Rum.Bunkhouse crag. Absolutely stunning location. Definitely have plans to come back and stay in the bunhouse and explore some of the other areas.

We bumped into Andy Nisbet who was checking out routes for the new guidebook. Andy’s partner leading the brilliant “Return of the Jedi” Andy Nisbet seconding “Return of the Jedi” Naomi leading the classic “Yir” So much rock! Oliver leading “Greta Gabbro”Mark working out which route to climb next – you can just see the other guys on “Volcane” behind himCopyright Andy Nisbet – Andy was kind enough to send me a picture of me leading “Star Wars”, Took a couple of tries at this section but got there in the end.
Lets hope this good weather continues right through the summer.
