Volcanic temperatures at Ardnamurchan

Today I took Nathan and Ruairidh to the Ring Crags out at Ardnamurchan to work on R's climbing. It was hot. Its rare for it to feel almost too hot to climb in Scotland but today almost did it!
Great to see Guy and Alan out there sweating and smearing too.
Ruairidh led his first pitch of Severe and a good long pitch of VDiff and we showed him what he could do as he followed pitches of 4b, 5b, 5a, and 5b!
 Guy hanging out on Yir
 R leading his first Severe
 Bringing N up
 N with his feet dancing on nothing
 Guy on the excellent Greta Gabbro
 Alan following on Claude
 Nathan heading Up Pompeii
 Starting the run out
 R styling the seconding
 R leading on Wedge Buttress
 Doing it for himself
 Sweating gently
 Guy and Alan on Ring of Fire
 N reaching for the gear on Krakatoa
 Happiness is a good cam
Last route of the day
