Garbh Bheinn

Today Ben and I undertook the slog up to South Wall on Garbh Bheinn. This crag is South facing so we were in the sun all day however winds were high and it made situations a little scarier. We started off on Butterknife VS, I led the first two pitches which were awesome, the best two pitches of the climb, then Ben did the second two, the last being the direct finish which gets 4c. We then went and climbed the amazing Excaliber HVS 5a. I did the 1st and third pitch and Ben just managed to get across the second. With high winds I wasn't really tempted by the harder routes and also Ben was having an 'off day' (yesterday his climbing partner took a huge ('whipper') so we fell asleep under the crag in the sun for a while before bailing. A steep walk in but worth it!
