Geoff and Pete Eaten by Midges

Date: 21st August 2004
Submitted by: Pete Smith
Geoff Thomas and I went to Dungloon (Kinnego Bay) and climbed Forked Lightning VS, and Red Duster E1. More to the point, Geoff led them and I seconded them with elastoplast all over my sore finger.

We had a good look around the place (as Geoff hadn't been there before) and then we motored over to Warm Bay Point (because he hadn't been there, either).

After a gruelling tramp through the heather, we finally found the correct descent, only to be savaged by two million midges and forced to retreat.

Two climbers, two routes, two crags, two million midges...but we still enjoyed ourselves!
