Flake Route

Bags off
Today I was out with Donald and Guy for a look up on Bidean in Glencoe.  The crag looked spectacular with plenty of snow around, huge avalanch debris and plastered crags.  We opted for Flake route (IV,6) which was fun climbing up tight squeezes and some steep mixed sections.  As the route was so buried it was hard to find gear, we worked out over a drink in the Clachaig, that on the 150m route, we only placed 7 bits of gear (excluding belays).  It felt bold!
