Glen Nevis

Well after a couple of wet days here in Fort William with the only option to do some training at the Ice Factor and Kimber's bouldering wall, I got back out today in Glen Nevis. Today I was climbing with returning client Izzi. Izzi is happy to leave the ice axes at home, forget about the hot aches, not worry about ripping gore tex and kick start her rock climbing season. Today we went for a shake down day in Glen Nevis, going over some of the classic routes and getting a wee bit of mileage. We started on Two Pines (Severe) on Repton Buttress which I led up, then Izzi led up Pandora (Severe) for two pitches and then I took over and led up Phantom Slab (VS 4c). After a wee lunch break we headed over to the Alp and Izzi led up Pine wall (Hard Severe) where we then abbseiled of the pine tree. To finish off the day I led up the Polldubh classic Resurrection (VS 4c) which was a little damp in places. So 9 pitches and 2 abseils saw us back at the car and we didnt even reach for our waterproofs once!
