    Anyone out? We had a roasting day on the South Gill slabs yesterday completely out of the wind. Climbing without a t-shirt seemed like a good idea but now quite sunburnt!

    Wind has swung to NEly so Hamar might be a good option? The Warie Gill or Otters Head would also be ok, but windy at the top.

    Yeah, it’s rarely a good idea that! Gave me the worst sunburn I’ve ever had once.

    I’ll probably be free. Will post up again later.

    Oh and yes, The Flame is coming right past my house tomorrow afternoon and we have guests thereupon to gaze. My kitchen roof is the perfect vantage point. All welcome if you’re interested and got nothing better to do.

    I noticed that you used a ladder to get onto your roof, Andy. Does it still count as HVS??

    It has a noble pedigree. Tom Patey used a ladder on the first ascent of the Old Man of Stoer. He was faced with a blank wall at the start and was beginning to get worried when he realised he “just happened” to have with him the ladder they’d used to bridge the gap to the shore.
