'Sunshine on a rainy day!'

The forecast for yesterday was for the weather to start off ok but quickly turning to low cloud and showers. Despite this Nick, Lou and myself optimistically headed up Glen Nevis to see what we could get done before the rain hit. Luckily for us the forecast turned out to be a little pessimistic and we had perfect blue skies, sunshine and a light breeze all day!

For a nice start to the day Lou lead up Three Pines (severe), a lovely route with some rather interesting moves under a roof to gain a ledge. Fun climbing on good gear!

 Myself and Nick then followed her up before moving up to South West Crag. Here i lead up Tear (HS) which is a lovely line but somewhat spoilt by being extremely polished by the number of Outward Bound groups which use it

After this Lou lead up Resurrection (VS), one of the finest routes in the glen, before i lead up Damnation (VS)

Just before the delicate, balancey crux of Resurrection 

Another great day out with lovely weather, rounded off by a nice walk round Cow Hill before the rain finally hit about 9pm!
