The last couple of days on Hoy have dawned drizzly so the boys haven't attempted the Long Hope Route. Andy managed to snatch a couple of routes with Mariam on Sunday, somewhere near the Old Man of Hoy and he and Dave headed to Rorra Head yesterday and ticked off a couple of new routes. Dave's lead was approximately E3/4 6a and called Slick John and Andy thought his route was about E2 5b and he hadn't thought of a name!!
This morning however, I got the text message to say that they were walking in under grey skies and going to give it a go. Not heard anything since so I have to assume that they have made an attempt and retreated or they are still on it and hopefully nearing the top.............will just have to wait and see. Will of course post as soon as I know.
Meanwhile back in the real world James Thacker and I have been working hard to get Andy's new website up and running and looking pretty swish. An absolutely MASSIVE thank you to James who is a whizz with all the technical stuff. Go check it out and let me know what you think.
