We had a great few hours at Polldubh Glen Nevis near Fort William. The weather was kind and there were only a few midges about, they can be the scourge of the West Coast of Scotland. Tom Mac Donald and Stephen Burns climbed with me after a good night in Onich. Fort William was very busy with the Mountain Bike World cup. Great to see so many people about enjoying Scotland’s outdoor capital.
We climbed the classic Pinnacle Ridge this climb was first climbed by the well kent local climber and member of the Lochaber Mountain Rescue Team Jimmy Ness and another pioneer of Mountain rescue Doctor Donald Duff in 1947. The route is now graded severe and is fairly polished due to the number of ascents. The weather remained good all day with a breeze to keep the midges away. We met some of the RAF Leuchars Mountain Rescue Team who were climbing on the cliff. We also climbed Pine Wall before heading home after a good weekend. I have attached a copy of the Lochaber MRT team magazine, Scotlands busiest team, who really on donations to work worth a read for £2.
