Today Stephen, Stuart and i went to the East face of Aonach Dubh. The steep rhyolite crags here give excellent climbing and there are a few routes that are very quick drying. Our first route of the day wasnt one of them though! Rowan tree wall (V Diff) was quite wet and challenging for the guys. That took us onto the terrace and from there we went up the classic Quiver Rib (Diff) which we all agreed is well worth its stars - steep, rough positive rock with gear where its needed and great situations. Most of the routes on the lower tier are wet (except perhaps Eve's Arete) but there is a lot of dry rock on the upper tier. Sunshine, no midges -spring in scotland at its best!
