Wednesday 18th - Rock Climbing at Elgol

Mick preparing for some steep Sandstone!

The forecast for today was not good, persistent rain and gusts of 75mph, not what you want for scrambling on exposed ridges! So we headed around to the village of Elgol for a spot of rock climbing. We spent the day doing some climbing on School House Buttress that gives a handful of steep VS routes in lovely rough sandstone. We managed to avoid the worst of the showers and were happy we were not up high. After we all had tired arms and sore fingers we went and had tea and cake in the Elgol Coffee shop!
