Some climbing reports from the winter meet

Climbing reports

Here are some pictures from the weekend last year to whet your appetite.

Simon Richardson and Iain Small climbed a new hard testpeice to the left of Rouges Rib which had previously almost been completed by Iain and Blair, full write up on Simons blog www.Scottishwinter.com. The line, 'No Success like Failure', Weighing in at a hefty IX (8). Iain was obviously firing on all cylinders on the Saturday.

Another great line climbed was by Jim Higgins and Neil Adams who did Avenging angel direct, linking the main pitches of Archangel to Avenging Angel at a very sustained VIII (8) all the way. Again, Simon has a good write up of this line on his site www.Scottishwinter.com.

Next door Dave Almond made short work of Cornocopia which was in great nick.
