Gneiss climbing for new leaders

3 of the 4 Glenmore Lodge climbing teams went to Gairloch today to sample the delights of Raven's Crag (Giles's team went to Ardverikie wall). Mike and Narsi led themselves up Lucy in 2 pitches (what a great route- big hill feel on a small hill crag) before we climbed some of the single pitch routes letting them try placing gear whilst climbing a harder route.

 Do we have to go?
All too much for some
