Steall Hut Crag
Today Blair and I headed up into Glen Nevis dodging the rain showers and puddles. We arrived at Steall Hut Crag to find Greg and Mike getting a work out on an 8a there. With quite alot of seepage around Blair and I had a go on the only route that looked dry (and the only route I had a chance of getting to the top of). We had a few goes on Trick of the Tail (7b+) which, quite frankly is nails, especially for my weak arms. I managed to get up to the top and workout most of the moves but felt I was a long way off leading it. Its proper run out at the start after the first bolt...no need for that! Fortunately Blair found it hard and scary too so I knew it just wasn't me.
