An absolutely stunning day in the mountains, in stark contrast to the deluge that came down on the weekend before, when the trip was previously scheduled. I only had 7 starters instead of 16, but that was probably for the best, as the logistics would have been more challenging. One member realised at the top of the first abseil that their harness was still back in the car - and were forced to tie a somewhat less comfortable tape harness for the day!

After our six abseils, we headed to the rather crowded Ruined Castle for lunch, though some of us came up via a new and interesting route! An excellent day in the Bluies with great company.
