We had a good day clipping bolts at Creag Bheag near Golspie in Sutherland yesterday, we arrived to quite damp and chilly conditions. But the weather improved as the day went on and before we new it we where climbing in t-shirts again. (Mid november and still in t-shirts, got to be happy with that.)
Even more routes now on this crag than shown in the topo, all around the 5 – 5+ grade.
Deziree, Sheila, Jon J, Simon and I just about ticked the crag in the four hours that we were there. Along with plenty of eating, chatting and of course the necessary piss taking!
This is a great crag for some easy to mid grade routes, all well packed on to the crag with an easy going grassy base and a five minute approach. Perfect venue for folks getting into bolt clipping as well as seasoned pro’s!
Off down to Grandtully this week for what will hopefully be a signing off for directing Swift Water Rescue 1 courses. Fingers crossed it all goes well.
