North Buttress, Buachaille

It did the job. A track was in place, gave the required grade of climbing and an opportunity to look at rock anchors - plus being safe.

We were joined by Tim and his assessment team that included Si Lake, James Thacker and Chris plus another 3. Sociable start but everyone managed to find their place and climbed quickly. The assessment team went up and over the others abseiled back to the start.

There was a fair bit more snow than last Thursday, allowing for a few more footholds and bit more to swing at. In the morning there was a bit of mini snow storm but this cleared later to give beautiful views across the moor.

I was working for Abacus today with Graham and Terry. They are back next Monday for another two days of climbing fun.
