Clachaig Gully

After being stood up today by a climbing partner, Al decided to take the afternoon off and help me tender my climbing addiction. He had an idea to climb this 'classic' route in Glencoe! When I heard he wanted to try Clachaig Gully, I wasn't too sure. It turned out to be a interesting climb with some great bridging problems on sometimes wet and slimey rock. Some pitches were run out, but generally the gear was good with patches of loose rock here and there. The sun was on our backs pretty much all the way so a stop off in the nearby pub was needed right away. Very good route which was first climbed in 1938.
