Ben leading at Aztec Tower

A high pressure end to September

I've just finished another rock climbing course for the army. We had mostly dry sunny weather and ended the course with beautiful warm sunny days on the west coast of Scotland

The highlights were an ascent of the Cioch Nose at Applecross, we climbed Snothard rather than the classic Severe and were well impressed with the climbing. We then had 2 lovely days at Jetty Buttress and Aztec Tower.
