Summer Climbing in the Cairngorms

Head out with Callum to the Cairngorms for my first time summer climbing. We where having a bit of a late student style start of the day meeting at 11 but as it was so hot to walk in without a top Hay hoo. We went to Coire an t'Sneachda to Aladdin's Buttress. There as still a bit of snow about but all the climbing where dry and looking amazing! First up was the Three Star The Magic Crack. It really is a good as crack climbing can be. The third pitch is just great and wish it keep on going for a fuel 60m.

The amazing third pitch!
Next up was Edgewood witch is great too! Nothing to hard moves ways but gear when you wanted it and just enff of a run out to keep it fun. It was Callum's first E1 and it was a multi pitch one too. He was chill as and will be sending more of the grand soon I think.

So E1 hay?
