Ivor and I had a very pleasant morning sport climbing in the sun at Kirrie Hill, Kirriemuir today. It’s a very sheltered crag and a real sun trap.
The nature of the crag meant we were able to climb a good number of routes in a relatively short visit.
Euan, Ivor and I are trying to keep training/climbing going as much as possible during the autumn to get us strong for the winter season. Yesterday the weather dictated training inside at Alien Rock, however today we headed outside to Kirrie Hill at Kirriemuir. The crag was dry and we had a good few hours climbing routes that were nearly all new lines for us.
Euan, Ivor, Nettle and I climbed at Kirrie Hill, Kirriemuir, today. The crag was a little wet in places and the atmosphere was very humid, which didn’t make for the best climbing conditions. However, we were able to climb a number of routes and work on some projects.
Jen and I visited Katie, Izzy, Kofi and Eva in the Angus Glens today and had a delightful few hours taking the kids climbing at Kirrie Hill, Kirriemuir.
The crag was dry and there were quite a few teams climbing, but there was plenty of space for everyone and a very friendly atmosphere. I’ll put more photos on the ClimbNow Facebook page.
Euan, Ivor and I had a good day sport climbing at Kirriemuir today. The crag was dry when we arrived, but there were showers from early afternoon. However, the nature of the crag meant that many of the routes stayed dry and we were able to climb for a further two hours.
Mick and I had a delightful day sport climbing in the sun at Kirrie Hill, Kirriemuir today. There’d been showers in the morning, but the crag tends to stay quite dry and drys quickly, so we had a very pleasant afternoon climbing a good number of routes.
Mick and I headed up to Kirriemuir today for some sport climbing. It was my first pure rock climbing day of the season and Mick’s first rock climbing in 8 years.
The venue proved a good choice being sheltered from the cool northerly breeze; catching the sun and having lots of routes across the easier grades allowing us to climb 10 routes in a relatively short time. For those who are interested the higher Angus hills could be glimpsed from the approach and still seemed to be holding quite a lot of snow.
