The second of these real rock meets was again agreed to have been very enjoyable. Chris and Andrew – photo above – were joined by Rhona and Callum for a day at Ardheslaig, a near the roadside crag of excellent Gneiss, a few miles west of Sheildaig, Torridon.
For Rhona this was a reintroduction to discover the pleasures of trad. climbing in a secure environment – see below – whilst Callum confessed to being a little rusty, having done little climbing for a number of years. We all enjoyed three or four routes of 35 metres – Callum took photos from an adjacent route at times. Although the rain arrived a little earlier than forecast, the quality of the rock matched the enthusiasm of the participants and the last climb was happily completed, before we retired to the Tigh an Eilean in Sheildaig for “warm down”.
It was a very contented and excited group which headed homeward, discussing where to go climbing next.
