Kirriehill

Iona & Bob from Falkirk Community Trust and I set off for Glen Clova today on the basis of a dry forecast for that area. However, by the time we reached Kirriemuir it was raining lightly and the view up The Glens showed more rain in that direction. We switched plan and headed to the bolted sandstone conglomerate crag of Kirriehill. The rock there was generally dry and stayed dry through a few light showers allowing us to climb all day.

We climbed a good selection of routes either leading or bottom roping. Iona and Bob both led their first outdoor sports routes and learnt how to re-thread at the top of a bolted climb, if required.
