Torridon Multi pitch Rock Climbing

climbing-torridon-5After completing a 5 day intro to climbing course I was hired by the group to lead a guided climbing trip up the ‘Triple Buttresses’ of Ben Eighe in Torridon. I guided two of the group, Garry and Scotty, up Hamilton’s Route 280 m, the first third being on Sand Stone and the last two thirds on Quartzite. It’s a real mountain route with 2 hours walk in and some very loose blocks (easily avoided). We managed to time it so we saw the sun set just as we topped out, epic!. Then it was a walk back to the van with head touches.

What a climb to have done as your first multi pitch!!
