Erraid - 23/07/2008

Today Al and I headed out early onto the Isle of Mull to this peaceful little place called Erraid. The new Gary Latter guidebook tempted Al and he tempted me and it turned out to be an ace place, nice (almost untouched) granite to climb, white sand beaches and excellent views out to sea. The routes ware all quite short, so we managed to get plenty of routes in - Bacteria Soup (S), Smelly Mussels (HVS), One Dead Puffin (HVS), Goupher Hole (VS), Misunderstanding (VS), Blood Orange (S), Oliver (VS), Elephants (VS) and Panther (S). I wasn't feeling to strong today (or for quite a while actually), but there is definitely potential for some new routing and lots of other harder climbs. I will definitely come back here on a camping trip and tick off lots of routes and try out the awesome looking deep water soloing.
