The Big Top - Aonagh Dubh

The good weather was to last the weekend. So Guy and I headed to Aonagh Dubh. Guy had his eye on a route called 'The Big Top' (E1 4c, 5a, 5a, 5a). I wanted to see how my ankle was holding up, plus I haven’t done an interesting route in a long time. So needless to say I was well up for it.

Guy clearly comfortable with the exposure

Me on the first pitch.
I led the first pitch because it was the easiest; I thought this would let me know if I was able to take on anything harder. After taking an hour on the first pitch I thought it best to let Guy lead the rest. After a hair raising descent down No.4 Gully it was back to the bags and home.
Great Day!
