Agags Groove 22/8/09

At the 8MHMC Lagangarbh meet David was keen to try outdoor climbing and obviously the Buachaille is ideal. Agags Groove is considered one of the best V Diffs in the country, it follows a groove that crooses the Rannoch wall, i had done it last year but it was one of my first rock climbs and i seconded almost all of it. since John had been up it several times he came up with the plan that i would lead it, David would second it and he would go up the curved ridge and take photos.

Apart from a shower early on it was a fine day, there were a couple of parties ahead of us but apart from waiting to start they never held us up, mainly due to me climbing very slowly!
