‘End of Silence’ and other routes at Weem

Martin and I used the last day of good weather today before the rain arrives to return to Weem to climb some more of the excellent sport routes. Last week, I attempted ‘End of Silence’ but did not complete the route due to the heat. Today was overcast and the route went on the first redpoint. Martin climbed six routes on the main face. Martin reported all to be of excellent quality. One or two of the routes could do with some more traffic but generally most routes are clean.

Climbing in the sun at Weem

Yesterday, I was out at Weem climbing with Ivor, Michael, Graham, Pamela and Kenny. Weem crags are located near Aberfeldy and provide both excellent traditional and sports climbs. The routes were all dry and the ‘side wall’ area of Weem Rock was very hot in the afternoon sun.
