Glen Nevis - 3/04/09
A day down Glen Nevis proved to be very productive with Donald, Ben and Graham. We started off at Whale Rock and the first route of the season I led Ben and Graham up Earthstrip (E2 5c). After this we headed up to skeleton boulder for a few problems, skin was ripping pretty easily! Then headed back down to the river and did 1.5 deep water soloing problems, yes i fell into the cold snow melt water!! After drying off, we went up to Scimitar Upper Buttress and climbed Jesus Christ Come on Down (VS-E2???)(I think HVS 5a). We then wandered up to Bistro Buttress and Donald and I climbed Cool Cookie(E15a)/Winter Blues(E25c)?? The skies were clear with very little wind.
