Ravelston Dry Tooling

Given a fairly nasty looking forecast Cameron and I decided to head to Ravelston Quarry today for a few hours dry tooling before the heavy rain arrived.

The quarry isn’t bolted and a rigging rope is definitely helpful for setting up bottom ropes. We climbed the two corners, the arete between them and one of the face routes allowing us to work on technique and get a good work out. Care is required with the rock and there are a few sizable newish looking rock scars on some of the face routes.
