Rockdust

Today we beat the masses across the Bridge and headed to Rockdust in Perthshire. Just outside Pitlochry, these small crags are in the most beautiful location, with views to the Cairnwell to the east and ...er something with a little bit of snow on it to the west. Sunny, warm and cloudless, it was a fabulous day for some sport climbing. There aren't many bolts in Scotland (there are many threads on the arguments for and against this if you check Scottish Climbs), so it was a bit odd to be hanging off bolts in the cool Scottish air surrounded by greenery, sheep and teeny tiny lambs.

What a view, in spite of the phone mast.

Having over-stretched my shoulder last weekend, I was taking it a bit easier, so no hard climbing of note for me today. It was just nice to be outside and hang out with friends.

Post-climbing chill in the sunshine...
