The Anvil

I headed west yesterday to The Anvil near Lochgoilhead in order to get some photos of the existing routes and also some of the hard projects still waiting to be claimed.

Hanging out at The Anvil, MacLeod and Sutton

Anvil regulars, Daves Redpath and MacLeod, were occupied on their latest projects and from Edinburgh Emma and Sarah had made the long drive to check out the crag for the first time.

Redpath has been making steady progress on his current project, possible F8b+? Yesterday on lead at the crux he managed to hold the swing for the first time.

Holding the swing

He kept going through more hard moves and then just before reaching easier ground... a hold landed not quite right...

end of play for the day.

MacLeod had climbed Metalcore F8c+ here a few days ago (see Dave MacLeod's Blog) and was now focussed on another line of similar difficulty but different character. This line has 'relatively' easy climbing that lead into two massively difficult moves.

I climbed Friendly Fire F7a which I reckon is the best line at that grade in Scotland.


Emma Sutton through the first crux on Friendly Fire F7a


Emma was also on the line climbing well and rapidly had to re-think her objectives for the climbing season. 'F7a by the end of the year' became 'F7a by the end of today', and she very nearly pulled it off reaching a tantilising high point of 2 moves from the top.

Sarah and I tried Spitfire F8a+ which we both thought was superb, if somewhat out of my league. (ok, way out of my league). Something to train for.

A good fun day and some good pictures collected for the photo library.

To every game player angels gold is very import. My friend gave me some angels online gold, he said that I could buy angels gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some cheap angels online gold.
Once I played Anarchy, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have Archlord gold. He gave me some Archlord money, he said that I could buy Archlord gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some archlord online Gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap Archlord gold to anyone who want.
