Rock Climbing at Neist

On Saturday Paul, Dave and I met up on Skye. The guys have been using the mountaineering skills we've worked on in the past to good effect on Ben Nevis and Skye. Now they wanted to push things a little further. With a mixed forecast (poor from mid-morning) we were up and on the go about 6am and heading for the sea clifs at Neist. The breeze kept the midges off and there were only a few light showers all day long.We climbed a handful of Severes and the guys each led their first 3 pitches of V Diff around Poverty and Destitution Points. Dry, rough rock.... a pleasant change!
