Glan Marksie: With no ticks!

A sunny Glen Marksie (Proteus)

With the gates open through to the Dam, GlenMarksie is only a 10minute walk from the car. Another good sunny forecast, ensured day two of the trad season went well.
Despite needing a good brushing, the crag revealed itself to be good, with 5 routes ticked. The routes varied from awkward, to slabby, to silly awkward to hard!
Sea of tranquillity was my favourite I think the classic two pitch 3*HVS . Andy was on good form, making light work of some other awkward numbers. Proteus makes you wish your legs are 6inches longer, fortunately Andy’s are.

9ft Wing Span


I also found Callisto hard for it supposed 5a! Still 6 pitches in the afternoon sun.
The really nice Sea of Tranquillity.
