Pabbay And Mingulay

I've been wanting to get out to the Hebrides for a while now, with so many pictures of epic-looking cliffs being smashed by the sea.

The routes are ridiculously good. There's not that much to say about the Islands, except that they're perfect in almost every way. You eventually get bored of climbing 3/4 star routes, with jugs everywhere and epic lines, splitting massive cliffs. I didn't even have to venture onto tricky routes to maintain interest in the islands, although we did put up perhaps one of the best routes around- Eagle Gravy (E1 4c). Or maybe not..

The crew was good, the weather was pretty cool- all in all an ace trip. Only a week to go until the alps now- maybe a quick headpoint of the Kepwick Groove before we go? It's shaping up to be an ace year.
