West Coast Climbing action...

So after a day clearing the head on the bike I headed out west for some climbing fun in this brilliant weather. After meeting Jen in the Fort we first headed to Polldubh in Glen Nevis to climb a couple of routes as Jen said it's a world class climbing venue (strong words)...

Waiting for the next pitch..

We climbed a couple of fun routes and she is totally on the money, amazing... amazing rock, amazing views/situation and atmosphere. I was hooked and wish I had more time for this great venue. I'll definitely be back when the midges (due soon sadly!) disappear.

On to Ard....

Next on the hit list was Ardnamurchan.... we procrastinated a little as its a long drive but went for it.  One word - wow.... We climbed on the ring crags (Meall An Fhir-Eoin Beag) which after a very long drive took 1 hour to walk to.

Time to walk (crag on horizon)

Very beautiful, with views of the sea, and from the crag you could see the whole ring (remnants) of the old volcano that we were climbing on. All the climbs here were amazing, but a highlight was 'Ring of Fire', the HVS we finished on. A magical place, and climbing trip - thanks Jen.

Amazing place


Love this rock
