I just re read my mates account of the Glencoe Skyline race and this really stood out to me and gives an idea of the true calibre of many who compete in these races. Thiss paragraph when he was on the grade 2 traverse of Aonach Eagach, Mark Hartree writes
“The technical ridge gave me the chance for a few more specs to be nipped past. My past experience from the MRT and teaching climbing came in handy when I came across another racer somewhat stranded on the edge of sheer drop on the Aonach Eagach. He was well stuck so I took the time to coax him to turn around and face inwards then gave him a lesson in down climbing. My good turn for the day probably saved some serious consequences. Alan caught up with me, but I got away and overtook another four by Am Bodach. Happy-happy days.”
