Beautiful winter climbing in Stob Corrie nan Lochan

Feb 02, 2014

Last thursday we had a great day in Stob Corrie nan Lochan, with lots of folk climbing hard lines as the crag was in great nick. Iain and Blair did an extremley hard line on central buttress left of East Face route called Year of the Horse at around VIIII/9. It must have been hard as Blair had a fun time just seconding Iain. He really is climbing well this year. We did a mix of Ordinary route and boomerang arete with the guys doing most of the leading and working on ropework.
