Cragging at Duntelchaig
Today Alan, Chuck, Donald and I headed East in search of sunshine, and we found it. Lochaber was choked with rain clouds all day so we ended up climbing at Duntelchaig. We were greeted with blue skies and a nice breeze and good dry rock. Donald and I climbed on Dracula Buttress ticking off Dracula (E3 5c), Frankenstein (E2 5c), Balrog (HVS 5b) and made a start on Vampire (E3 6a), but Donald backed off as the route was dirty and clearly un-climbed for quite a while. We also climbed a route between Frankenstein and Balrog which wasn't in the guide book, I thought it was E1 5a. Alan and Chuck started climbing over on The Main Crag and then came over to Dracula Buttress and climbed Balrog. More wet and unsettled weather due for Scotland over the next few days, with the East coast looking a little more appealing. No photo's today.
