This place is the business! Amazing routes, amazing setting. Just like the Islands but smaller. A 40 minute walk in saw us abseiling into the steep cliffs of Creag Rhoda Mor. This crag was only developed over the last few years and was kept a secret until most of the routes were climbed. We warmed up in the Bundished Walls on Mega Flake (E2 5c), huge jugs, good gear, wild position and slightly rattly rock at the top. We then climbed Rusty Buckets (E3 6a) – Do not warm up on this! So pumpy but a brilliant pitch with really cool finger pockets to yard up on. After the main wall dried up (gets a bit smeggy early on from the sea) we jumped on (My Own) Personal Mingulay (E4 6a) which was a fantastic route, really steep and with my wiltering forearms it was tiring. However as the climbing was so good we abseiled back in and Murdoch made a nice lead of Rodha Mor (E5 6a), another brilliant route which I fell off at the top with my elbows touching the sky and having a bone marrow pump! Day 3 – Feeling broken with non-functional arms.
