Drier rock

Rob came to me to learn a little climbing ropework. With largely dry weather and the promise of a breeze we went to Polldubh. Lower down as we climbed Pinnacle Ridge we had the midge for company but higher up on Right Wall of Styx Buttress the air began stir and as well as drier rock the bugs were blown away. Then, after looking at a self protected retrievable abseil, we climbed The Gutter in big boots with our packs on to make a little height to get to the excellent Secretaries Direct, perhaps the best Severe in The Glen. Finally, just to give Rob the experience of something a little harder we went to Dundee Weaver to end the day. It was quite a nice change to climb on warm dry rock after a damp week.
