Cummingston: Evening sunshine.

A quick dash for the sea cliff outcrops of Cummingston was on the cards last night. With rain all around the Moray coast lived up to its record and remained dry until we sat back in the car at the end of the evening. A couple of sandy severe’s were dispatched and I moved on to the very spikey arete of Stegosaurus, a lovely VS that got me back into leading at this place and helped dispel some of my distrust of this very soft rock. The spike are very thin and er, well spikey and the fact they have survived a few decades of people heaving away on them is perhaps proof enough that the rock is perhaps a little better than I give it credit for.
Paul finished with a quick dispatch of Giraffe Corner E36a after a quick inspection, he was off and finished this surprisingly well protected route in no time. I followed and onsighted a 6a route for the first time, albeit second. Anyway back to the car the heavens opened and rain fell all the way back into town.
