sticil face

"The Sticil Crag, later named the Shelter Stone Crag, is a massive 800ft, north wall of slabby granite situated at the west end of Loch Avon.  It is one of the most imposing cliffs in Britain..." Cold Climbs

I love climbing a route, and then reading about it :)

One of my blogs will never do a route like this justice, but yesterday was of the best days I have ever had in the mountains.

Amazing views, an amazing route with some amazing company - there is lots to be said for climbing as a 3.

And like nearly all my experiences of climbing on the Shelter Stone, it always leaves the final sting until the very end :)
