Go Further!

The recent spell of incredible weather saw some new sport routes added over the Christmas period. After Murdo, Paul and Colin first equipped a series of 7s on the main wall a few other lines are now established on Goat Crag. Most recently, Paul Tattersall finished a line left of Teepee – Tom Paine’s Bones at 6c. Nearby, Am Fasgadh finally has a sensible warm up thanks to Ian Taylor – The Groove 6b+, the right hand line of bolts following the groove – vaguely.
Right of The Crack (7b) Paul has also bolted The Shield at 7a+ which has rapidly become a classic. Left of The Crack, Ian Taylor and Lawrence Hughes equipped Primo – 7c – which goes all the way up the headwall of perfect rock above the quartz band to a lower-off at 25m. Thanks also to Murdo for sorting out several of the lower-offs at this crag before he was injured. More on Goat crag and Am Fasgadh soon.

The picture shows Jenny Cunningham and Paul ‘Storkey’ getting to grips with Mac Talla and The Prow respectively at Goat Crag.
