Hi all, every* year at the end of May a small but hardy band of NLMC climbers head north to Scotland in search of long days, long routes, dry rock, wet lochs, single malt and glorious climbing. This year the meet (which somehow isn’t on the meets diary ) is from Saturday 26th May to Sunday 3rd June.
Richard Young and I will be heading up on the Friday from Stroud in my van, and will be heading up to Skye, stopping as appropriate and weather permitting doing the Traverse at some point. I know Guy and some others may be overlapping a few days at the start.
There is no real plan, other than following the best weather, climbing the longest routes on the driest rock, swimming the wettest lochs and rivers, and cooking good food each night. It will be a mix of wild camping and staying at Glen Brittle campsite. Richard and I will be leaning more to longer mountain routes, but there is plenty of cragging, sea cliffs and walking to suite anyone.
If anyone is interested, let us know, there are three seats in the van so we have one spare space, flights to Glasgow from London are currently under £50 so fly-and-hire is quite cheap.
*not every year, but you get the idea.
