A bit of shelter on the Buachaille.

Simon at the top of the crux pitch.

Day one of three with Simon and with the weather set to continue being on the wild side we opted for North Buttress on the Buachaille. This gave us four great pitches of fairly sustained climbing with bomber hooks the whole way and even some helpful neve in places. We abseiled off from the top of the difficulties, the route breaks out left at the top of the chimney and to get to the Ab you have to traverse left. All of the Belays were in-situ today and it was quite a busy route but that was to be expected for the forecasts. Today I was working for Abacus Mountaineering and for the next two days.

Enjoying another spacious belay.
