Kicking the habit...

Sunday 5th June 2011

Despite the rain and poor forecast we needed to get our hands on some rock. January Jigsaw was the plan and with an early start to beat the rain had us heading to the Rannoch Wall, but with Craig "micro - naving" in the CLAG (Cloud Level At Ground) and the not forecast rain we deployed plan B. Cold and wet scramble up curved ridge and abseiled back down (just to get the rope out). Not many people do this but it's great for honing your technique. We managed three full length abseils before heading to Jacksonville. Loads of early season alpines en route.

1 min per contour but how many contours...
Me, happy to be on some rock again
