Feeling somewhat thwarted by recent conditions and circumstances I persuaded Ivor to join me for some dry tooling at Ravelston Quarry this afternoon. This small quarry in Edinburgh isn’t bolted; gear would be marginal at best and it it’s not a beauty spot. However, it provided a couple of hours of fun bottom roped dry tooling in a location sheltered from the winds and gave a bit of a work out.
We warmed up on the obvious corner and then climbed another couple of lines with Ivor cruising lines around D5. The rain arrived as it turned dark.
