The Camel

Today Donald, Ewan and I headed East in search of dry rock. As it was showering most of the day we opted for a crag which was both overhanging and dry. We arrived at The Camel. At the crag we were joined by Blair Fyffe and Gaz who had been here before and Blair was working one of the harder routes after warming up on some of the easier ones. We started off on The Stone of Destiny F6c+, followed by Paralysis by Analysis F7a+, Inverarnie Schwarzenegger F7a and finished on Final Straw F7a. The crag is hard conglomerate which is quite exciting to climb on, it's like stones concreted onto the face, sometimes unsure if the pebble your pulling on is going to hold.
