Then a sweaty bit of jungle bashing found us at the foot of Secretaries Direct, the best Severe in the Glen (and one of the best in Scotland IMHO). Lunch in the sun and then Simon led us up this before an abseil down.
After a review and refreshments Simon hit the road for Edinburgh and Lou and I spent a last 10 minutes looking at one more piece of ropework in the run up to her MIA Assessment (smash it Lou!) before the end of a hot but interesting day.
PS Yesterday I found a rope and some gear half way up Pinnacle Ridge. Contact me with a description to reclaim. http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?n=561041

Simon savours the exposure
There are far worse lunch spots
Top of the first pitch of Secretaries Direct
Pitch 2... almost as good as Pitch1!
Pitch 3's not so bad either!
Simon's brain about to bubble over...
