So the plane landed just fine and dandy into Glasgow, an expensive taxi got us into Dumbarton around 2am. Fortunately we got some wonderful hospitality from Dave and Clair and we have been sleeping in the living room. Oh the to be on the road.
Our first day back was wondeful, it wasn’t perfect, the crack still wet and the the holds humid, but it was not raining and we did our best. I am still suffering from bad skin issues, so I tried to do the best I could with tape. Yesterday Nick Rocheswhich made a clean top rope ascent of Requiem E8. WHich is good news and bad news according to him, good because ne can do it, bad because now he has to lead it.
Today has proven to be a dark and rainy. However there are still 8 hours of sunlight left and we are praying for a spot of clear skies. Our trip is coming to a close and I am not going to lie, it’s fairly frustrating. It’s not like traveling to Bishop in California or Spain for good weather, here the rain and the cloud cover determine everything. But that is also the beauty of this place, it makes those moments of ideal stick factor that much sweeter. So to those about to rock, we salute you.
