Glen Nevis hard stuff...

View from the crag
...too hard for me!  Last two evening I met up with Tony and Blair and headed up to Buzzard Crag.  Tony has a couple of projects he's been working on, trying to climb them on top rope before he leads them.  First evening we were working the moves on Liminality (E6 6c) as Tony's main objective was wet.  This great route follows an arête with some savage moves in the middle with some really hard to place gear (should you lead it).  Brilliant moves.  I wasn't able to link the whole route but could do most of the moves.  Probably the hardest route I have ever been on.  Today we went back up to the crag and Juggernaut (E7 6b/c) was dry which was Tony's objective.  We played around on top rope again, Tony climbed from bottom to top without falling, hopefully his next effort will be on the lead.  I, on the other hand will be trying it over and over again on top rope and will probably lead it in 2062!  It was a great couple of evenings too be out, the temperature is dropping and the midges are thinning out.  Love Autumn cragging.
