Gannets are here for the Golf


4th July 2018 A last minute arrangement and another grand Wednesday at Malin Head. Geoff was a bit late getting to Culdaff due to road works, Irish Open etc, but we went to Malin Head for a look anyway. The Skildren Mor crossing was calm, but there were nesting birds, so we gave it a miss. We abbed down the big slab west of Stelfox in the Cauldron, and climbed a lovely route on compact sound black rock, with good protection, about Severe, but with a thin move or two of 4b, (40m), we called it Black Bush. Then we did a variation of the Lizard Line, Cutting Edge combination, starting up rebel Yell and following the quartzite vein all the way across to the col. Makes this ‘Cutting Line’ about Severe+. Finished off with Dawson’s Diedre.  A good alternative to the Pro Am at Ballyliffin.
