Stand and Deliver

Andy approaching the first belay
Today Andy and I went for a shorter day, but without dropping any quality in the route we chose.  Aonach Beag was a good option for this, and Stand and Deliver V,5/6** gave us the quality route we wanted.  An easy long pitch takes you to the main event, which is a steep curtain that has an icicle through the centre.  Good climbing leads to the icicle, then a very steep, sustained section leads to easier ground. An outstanding pitch and as the guide suggests, high in the grade.

Me lovin' the crux!

Andy happy to be at the top!
