25 August 2012
Great morning climbing the first 3 pitches of January Jigsaw (s) and the last pitch of Satins Slit (VS). The alpine start meant we had the face to ourselves and managed to outflank the incoming rain and wind.

Craig was climbing well on his first climb back after his wee accident in the Alps.

Some images from the last couple of weeks showing and impressive land slide and some alpine’s that are out at the moment.

Le Mistral...

12 August 2012

It was windy and Buachaille Etive Mòr was covered in mist as Bill and I headed up to the Ranoch Wall from Jacksonville. We had planned to climb January Jigsaw but the CLAG and high winds made us change our minds to Agag's Grove instead. This route never disappoints and is great climbing for its grade. We came down a busy curved ridge as the sun came out and headed home. Lots of great Alpine flowers out just now.
