Day 5 Huntly's Cave

Needing a slightly shorter day and having clocked up the miles this week the Glenmore Lodge climbing teams had a hard look at the forecast and plumped for Huntly's Cave. This turned out to be a good idea as we had a little drizzle rain (almost forgotten what it felt like) but this didn't stop us eating up the pitches on the rock. Mike and Narsi split Cave Route in 2 and led a pitch each to give a new hardest lead for each. Then they led Right Hand Groove and Left Rib before each climbing Double Overhang with a top rope. Great week, great crags, great weather and great team of 8 climbers and 4 staff at the Lodge this week!
