Euan, Ivor and I were up at Rob’s Reed near Forfar today. This is an excellent South facing, bolted sandstone/conglomerate crag. The routes through the conglomerate bands can be difficult to read and, therefore, feel harder to onsight.
We climbed a good selection of routes including Horny Deer?, The Sheep of Things to Come, Little Bo Peep, Make My Day, Beyond The Call of Nature and The Pitscandly Chainsaw Massacre. Ivor’s redpoint of The Sheep of Things to Come and onsight of Little Bo Peep probably being the most impressive.
Sunny all day at the crag. We dropped in at Balmashanner on the way back to check the condition of the routes there, which mostly still have a fair bit of seepage on them.
