Staffin Slip. 28th March


Francis, Tony and Blair took me for my first day of rock climbing for the season today. Staffin cracks are fierce and pretty unrelenting so good body ache tonight.

Blair high on Gorbachov, E2 5b

Francis gardening the start of Lats in Space

Lats in Space E1, 5b

Tony on Woman of the Eighties, E3, 5c

Francis on Lat up a Drainpipe, HVS 5a

The beach was beautiful this evening as mists rolled across the Trotternish Ridge.

Highlight of the day however was finally finding my first dinasaur footprint set in the sandstone near the slipway itself-

Apparently footprint of a relative of Megalasaur circa 200 million years old!
