Looking gloomy

Looking good?!

Abseil into number 3 gully

Looking good!
Today we all decided to climb together to keep the banter flowing.  Callum had to walk out in the morning due to other commitments so Kenny climbed with Andy and I climbed with Paul.  We decided that we would all climb Lost The Place (V,5), a route I had climbed a few seasons ago and has now started to become quite a popular route.  Creag Coire na Ciste was heavily rimed and pretty well chocked.  I don't think I would have enjoyed being on a hard route today, gear would have been hard fought.  We climbed the route in 3 pitches which kept everyone entertained, felt bold for Kenny and I leading and provided some fantastic mixed climbing for Andy and Paul.  The top chimney is brilliant!  We abseiled back down number 3 gully and back down to the hut for a brew and to pack up our bags.  A great weekend in varied condition with fantastic company!
