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.
