Ian abseiling off The Old Man of Hoy

A week of Islands

Today I was on Skye on the Inaccessible Pinnacle on Sgurr Dearg. Last week I was in the Orkneys with Reed and Ian.

We managed to climb The Old Man on Friday after a couple of very wet windy days which meant that it was very sandy but still a spectacular climb. Then on Saturday last weekend we finished off our trip with a climb on the sports routes at Yesnaby on Orkney Mainland.

Kath leading Secretaries Direct

Cragging in Glen Nevis

Yesterday was really warm in Glen Nevis. I was climbing with Kath and Steve. They did loads of leading and we ticked quite a few classic Severes.

Today it was a lot cooler with a breeze that got stronger throughout the day and a few rain and hail showers passed through.
