Beinn Udlaidh

Today Dan and I headed up to Beinn Udlaidh to climb Peter Pan Direct. As we got to the crag there was a team on it, so we headed up Quartzvein Scoop (IV,4) instead. This was Dan's first grade 4, he has only ever climbed grade 1 gullies so he found this rather exciting. When we got back to the bags, Peter Pan Direct (V,5) was free, so we jumped on it. Another big step up for Dan, he loved the route despite him taking a fall, no harm done though. Conditions were great, the routes were nice and fat with good ice, the route exits were fine, however in the afternoon the wind picked up and it snowed, so lots of snow getting blown around above the routes! As we drove back, very heavy snow through Glencoe with strong winds! Unfortunatly no pics of Peter Pan Direct.
