Creag Dubh

Well considering winter is no longer here at least the rock is dry for some early cragging. I met up with Craig after a semi late start at Creag Dubh. Most of the crag was bone dry apppart from excess seapage on a few of the routes.
We started with Inbred (HVS 5a***) which was good fun and nothing too commiting but you could tell it had been a while. After a spot of lunch we climbed King Bee Direct (HVS 5a***). A fantastic variation which takes you out over an imposing overhang that looks much worse than it actually is. Craig then led the second pitch which goes at VS 5a and takes you to an exposed belay/descent. In hindsight should have abseiled off here but I led up the last pitch which really wasn't worth it (10m of rock climbing + 10m of slippy wet moss climbing gives you the 20m pitch).
Felt great to be back on trad again looking forward to the summer.

Oh suit you
