The mighty Dorsal Grat!

Today Andy and Scott took on the Dorsal Grat!

The new snow on the arete was so banked out it covers most of the usual rocks that normally offer great runners and belays.

The Dorsal Arete is an amazing, easy route giving splendid positions high above Stob Corie nan Lochan and avoids any issues of potential avalanche conditions. The belays are just perfect.The weather cleared up as the forecast had predicted, blues skies were the order of the day!

On a different note, do watch 'Three hungry boys' at 4pm on channel four on Saturdays over the next few weeks. Tavool House outdoor centre will be featured , the film crew came out with Hebridean Pursuits Ltd to film part of an episode.
