An absolute scorcher

It was an absolute scorcher today. It felt more like climbing in Spain rather than Strathconon, north of Inverness. Fi and I climbed the aptly name Salamander, Creag Ghlas on sun baked rough slabs. The route is an absolute cracker by the way and the stunning 5th pitch should not be missed. Today dehydration and heat stroke being a real issue due to the heat. We got back to our sacks and my scotch egg was nicely cooked, my Spanish chocolate mush along with a nice burning hot bottle of coke to quench our thirsts! The good weather is to continue through the weekend. See Fi's blog for more photos at http://www.marmotte.co.uk/blog/2009/05/salamander-creag-ghlas.html
