Better with a bike... or a submarine?
Gill and I went to Glen Gour in Ardgour today to enjoy the sun. The route in was partially submerged after the rain of the last couple of days but the bikes still helped and soon we were at the base of a 200+m sheet of excellent gneiss. Our Route was The Time Machine** 205m 4c, 4a, 4b, 4a, 4a. Adequate gear and never hard for the grade oh and the rock..... lovely sticky gneiss with holds just where you wanted them. The rock was also bone dry (even though ht few heather ledges were soggy) and a delight to climb. Wet feet on the walk out/pedal (paddle?) out but who cares?
