Tollaidh Triathlon 2013

On 21st April 2013 By

2013, the fifth Tollaidh Triathlon. Paul retained the title as overall winner. He joked that he should get to keep the Golden Karabiner now that he has won it three times,  like they do with the World Cup. The crowd were outraged and reminded him in no uncertain terms that he was duty bound to […]

Loch Tollaidh Crags

On 21st April 2013 By

There is a little circuit of E2’s at Loch Tollaidh Crags. It includes both Water Lily and Buena Vista on Hidden Crag. Certainly two of the best lines in the area at the grade. The crags get the afternoon sun. In these conditions the friction is incredible, the rock is so dry and warmed by […]

An Teallach

On 17th March 2013 By

An Teallach seemed very quiet yesterday. Kenny and I both had the feeling that we were the only people in the coire and on the mountain. This may well not have been the case, but we didn’t see or hear a soul all day. Along with the peace and quiet, we enjoyed Hayfork Gully (I) […]

Autumn Sunshine at Grass Crag

On 21st October 2012 By

What great weather the Northwest continues to get after such a wonderful summer. Grass Crag has the advantage of being one of the few Gairloch Sport Crags to get the sun all year. Goat Crag and Am Fasgadh are the other options when looking for a crag with a sunny aspect in the dark months. There […]

Return of Am Fasgadh Season

On 14th October 2012 By

Big Walling in Yosemite doesn’t prepare anyone for Am Fasgadh. Three bolts long, Warm Up just about sums the place up; desperate, technical, fingery and thuggish all at once. It was the second line Colin and I bolted up all those years ago and dozens of ascents haven’t made it any more do-able, today I […]

On 11th October 2012 By

Welcome home! The colour of the landscape here in the North West Highlands has completely changed in the four weeks I have been away. How different to a week ago when ‘The Team’ had just topped out on Tangerine Trip.
