Slippery when wet!

Today I was working for UHI with the second years helping to develop their rock climbing. With the water overflowing the gutters at the College this morning we went east to a drier Kingussie Crag where I spent the day with Rory. We climbed half a dozen pitches including his third and fourth leads on rock that varied from clean and dry to something akin to a well greased pole! The weather was bright and sunny and warm a cold and calm and windy and wet. And that was just the first hour.
