Home to rough, hot rock

Back to the ring crags today with Steve who hasn't really climbed there before. I was keen to go somewhere I hadn't climbed as much on as Meall Fhir Eoin Mhor/Beag. The Apron Slabs have had nesting birds the last few springs so I've avoided them but after looking hard during a visit a few weeks ago we made a careful approach today and found no birds or nests on the crag.
we climbed Leac Glass, Ne'er Day Corner, a possible new 2 pitch HS 4b on the crag to the north, Seabhraic and Toulouse Booze Cruise Blues to give 10 pitches from HS to E1.
Hot, dry, rough as you like, slabby and clean. Quite unlike anything we did in the Lakes last week and in a truly beautiful place.
Thanks to Steve for the pics of me.
 Not a bad day
Steve on Leac Glass… there must be a runner somewhere...
