Aonach Mor new route
Today Adam, Luke and I headed up to Aonach Mor as Adam had eyed up a new line to the left of Stirling Bridge. He had spotted the earlier this week when he was on Stiling Bridge and Pro Libertate. The new routes takes the groove and steep corner on the prow between the Stirling B and Pro L. It was a brilliant find by Adam, had some really interesting climbing with some sparse protection. A lot of the time it felt like I was only hooking a couple of Pixie Cups! Unfortunately the cold hands got sore and I got a bit pumped so I had to rest on the rope once, if i had just pressed on I would have got to an uber hook which I could have recovered on nicely. A good lead by Adam as always. We were thinking is maybe around grade VIII,8.
