    Does anybody fancy spending a couple of hours on some sun drenched shetland rock this evening?

    I was thinking the same, though there might be showers later. Have to be west-facing. Suggest Bannamin.

    Right, back from bike-ride. Er, well, when are you free? I’ve got to get some grub for Mary then I’ll be on my way. I could just meet you there.

    Hope you got out. we were planning to go to the Warie Gill but ended up just chilling out and now it’s raining!

    Had a nice wander to the back of Ronas today spying out a crag near the voe crags. No luck though, too grassy.

    Nah, blowing a hoolie according to Luke. Just as well because it started raining here. Starting to look reasonable for Sunday.

    Hi Luke. Got your text. Tonight (Thursday) Looks good – Bannamin? Or somewhere west? Pobie Skeo?

    Can meet east Voe marina if going west.

    Aye let’s just head to Bannamin, Pobie Skeo is a bit of a trek for an evening. How about meeting at 7:15 at the car park? or we can go a bit later….makes no odds to me really

    Hope you got something done before the mist descended. We’ve not managed to climb the past 2 days even though we planned to. Which inspired me to write this!

    Got in 3 ascents at Minn, mist was very thick but quite atmospheric. Rock went incredibly slippy after just a few sports of rain.

    Yeah, even the slightest damp and that place is lethal. Glad you got something done anyway.
