Caithness in the sun!

Today Karl, Al and I headed to the North East coast (where the weather was nice) for a days cragging. We were at Latheronwheel in Caithness, a crag we haven't visited before. It was wet at first but dried very quickly as he showers stopped and the sun came out. We climbed 11 routes ranging from severe to E2, the rock was very good, some small flakes broke off here and there but nothing worth writing home about! The crag is either vertical or slightly over hanging which makes the short routes quite sporting. No one else at the crag other than a couple of seals watching from the sea as Al's forearms could hold no more . . .
