Climbing at Logiehead, Cullen (25 April 2010)

Four club members attended an unofficial, informal meet to Logiehead, near Cullen – Andy, Bob, Malcolm and Kasia.
Several climbs and abseils were undertaken.

A selection of photos below from the day out.

“Night fever, night fever. We know how to do it.”:

Kasia, a bit off-route climbing an eliminate to the left of “Bladder Wrack” (Looks tough perhaps Very Severe!!!!):

Kasia succeeds up the eliminate and gets back en-route to “Bladder Wrack” (10m Severe 4b):

Malcolm then climbed “Sea Urchin” (10m Hard Severe 4b) – unfortunately no photo.

Malcolm, Bob and Kasia then took turns to undertake an abseil (without a safety rope, but backed up with a prussic loop).

We were then lucky enough to see several dolphins. Unfortunately, by the time I got the camera out they were just about past.

After lunch, Andy soloed “Mousehole” (5m Severe 4b).
Andy then demonstrated belaying as well as how to ascend a rope using two prussic loops, as ‘ascenders’.

Hopefully an enjoyable day out which was cut a wee bit short as it started raining.
Ice cream in Cullen was also very enjoyable. Thanks Kasia.
