Today I was back out with Alan who was keen for some more rock climbing as the weather was good. Like yesterday, it was cold and crisp but we stayed low in Glen Nevis where it was a little warmer than up on the tops. One of Alan's ambitions is to climb the Old Man of Hoy so he was keen to see how he perform's on some trickier routes. We started of on Ressurection (VS 4c) which Alan climbed without too many problems. We then climbed Damnation (VS 4c), a route Alan had tried in the past but failed, this time it was no problem for him. We then made our way down to Calvery Crack Buttress and climbed Storm (HVS 5a). With the top pitch a little damp and a little steep, Alan made a great attempt getting up to the belay but was unable to make it this time. Not many others out on the crag today, a group on SW Buttress and a chap self lining on The Old Wall.
