Glen Nevis easier stuff....

This afternoon I met up with Ben and we headed up into Glen Nevis for a few routes.  Ben was keen to get on an E1 as he hasn't led one for a while.  At Gorge Crag, I led Conscription (E1 5b).  Given one star but I think should be two.  Ben then lead All our Yesterdays (E1 5b) with a textbook belly flop onto the belay ledge, it was brilliant, like a seal berthing on a beach!  After that spectacular performance, we climbed In the Groove (E3 5c) which was brilliant.  Ben fancied the first 5b pitch but got shut down so I got to lead both pitches.  We abseiled off from the top as the rain started to fall, unfortunately Plagues of Blazes was wet and time was against us and we bailed.  A great day with a true legend!
