Upper Cave

In a bid to get a bit of fitness back, I've been up to Dunkeld a couple of times this week trying Marlina. Much to my suprise, I did the route yesterday which was a lot quicker than I expected. The debate about the grade is still on going, but it is definately harder than Hamish. I think that soft 7c is probably right as the hard climbing is well over for Hamish at the point the routes join and begins again for Marlina. I am always surprised at the quality of climbing that the routes on this wall offers, and with minimal polish.

A big thanks to Neil and Dave for their effort to replace all the bolts.
