Sirloin Slab, Lough Barra

A large group comprising Dave, Bill & self set off for Muckish on Pete Smith's insistence, but once we realised he wasn't in the back seat, we headed for Ben Cormac, (which might not be in the cloud). At the crag, numbers were boosted greatly by the local biting insect community, but Dave was not easily routed and led the largely unprotected HVS "Tapping the Vein"declaring it to be excellent and high in the grade. I then led "Garda Fox" VS4c and much better protected, and also excellent route. We got back to the car about 11.30- too late for a pint.
