|On the walk in... rain approaching...|
But I went along with the three line whip and we parked at a beautiful static caravan park at Cullen (charming!) for the walk in to Logie Head. The weather looked interesting, as we had driven through several rain showers heading East to catch us up?!

We did a few more perfect routes on dry rock and I was loving life again. I think the rock is greywackie (!), quite small 10m routes, but perfectly formed - wowsa.
Then things took a turn for the worse.. Loz's dream was to get out to the far wall which is slightly tidal and involved a green, slimy, greasy scramble down a gully whilst being watched by scary nesting guls... this lead to a climb through a cave/hole, and descent to a tidal platform... All good so far.
Loz climbed a route on this 'fabled' portion of the cliff, but unfortunately had to top out into gulgeddon, a narrow rocky ridge covered in guls. There was no alternative, no abseil to be rigged, no escape, no surrender. He belayed me up whilst being dive bombed... I got to the top and had to run across the rocky knife edge ridge to sanctuary whilst being hit on the head by diving guls!!!
