|Snow stops play on the Cuillin.|
|Kilt Rock - Grey Panther climbs the groove up the centre of the crag.|
Nervously I set of up the route. It's a big 40 metre pitch of sustained bridging and jamming on perfect rough rock. Thankfully blessed with good rests and with more runners you can shake a stick at (I placed 20!). Thankfully the pitch went smoothly and I was soon belaying Duncan and Fingers up. We then headed to Portree to warm up and escape the wind.

|My mum wasn't pleased when I returned the car in this state.|
|Diabaig in all her glory - The Pillar takes the prominent slab.|
|Cold rock and cold hands - Dunc on the Pillar.|

|Me on Northumberland Wall just before I backed off.|
|Beautiful people in a beautiful place.|
In short Scotland and Scottish rock climbing is amazing and I can't wait to go back for more!
