Dunkeld basking in the sun

Just in from an amazing day climbing on the cliffs just outside of Dunkeld.

It's amazing how may times i have passed the picturesque crags North of Dunkeld without climbing on them, but Ellis took today off work, and we headed up the A9 for an early start.

Climbing by 10am, we bagged 4 routes in a fantastic day on Polney Crag.

I lead Kestrel Crack (Sev)

Ellis lead, Beech Wall (HSev)

I lead Cuticle Crack (Sev)

Then we split Twisted rib (Vdiff), with Ellis smashing out the first pitch, and me leading the airy traverse then up the slab.

I think i got the best deal on Twisted rib, as poor Ellis was fully exposed to the unexpected squal that blew through whilst i was scrambling up the slab under cover of the trees.

Shit happens... :o)

Oh yeah, some pics from dunkeld trip last friday with Ellis

Undoing the belay.
