Autumn weather and damp rock

Another day working for UHI and today I was out doing some rock climbing development work with Dan and Cam. Both are reasonably accomplished (Dan has climbed some hard sport and trad routes this year and Cam solos mountain diffs on Skye) but wanted to focus on multipitch ropework and simple problem solving.
Despite the wet rock we managed half a dozen pitches on Pinnacle Ridge and the Gutter,  long abseil retreat and a couple of hoists. Well done to Dan who being from down south appears largely unfamiliar with the concept that wet rock can be climbed ( ;-) and Cam who forgot his rock shoes today (seconding polished damp mica schist Severe with no falls)!
 Dan 'enjoying' the rock 
 Cam following damp Severe in big boots
 Well some of it's dry Dan....
 Cam glad it wasn't his lead...
 ...but it is now!
Dan embracing Scottish rock- perhaps not in its best condition!
