Steall and summer highland afternoons out.

Loch Quoich, Knoydart. I took Freida for a walk at Kinlochourn. It was a lovely afternoon.

Ben Nevis from Steall crag

Michael dispatching the second ascent of my route The Fat Groove (8a)

I had a great but hard couple of days up there with Rich and Michael working hard on projects in fairly rubbish conditions. I now have three nice projects wired and ‘overlapping halves’ on all of them. All we need now is a fresh northwesterly and a couple of rest days for some exciting redpoints. Always love Steall sessions. The moves are super technical, sometimes downright weird, sometimes downright brutal, always pumpy as hell. Anyone fancy a session there next week?

Steven attaches big lenses to shoot the Gore-Tex ad in the Coe. Stob Coire behind.

Anna Wells suitably chuffed with her ascent of Peel’s Wall (E4), Pass of Ballater

Unclimbed roadside boulder, Knoydart. The prow looks like a V8 or so.
