On Wednesday January 19, Martin Moran and Pete Macpherson added a good new route to Druim Shionnach in Glen Shiel.
“We’re not sure what the name is yet,” Pete told me, “but it goes up the big left-facing corner which is on the left side of the prominent recess half way up the big ramp in the corrie. The corner is slabby on the left side and overhanging on the right with fantastic hooks but tiny edges for feet. Martin did his usual steady lead up the crux corner before committing to the left wall to pass the massive roof at the top. The second pitch consisted of easier climbing up turfy ramps and ledges to the top. We gave it VII,8 and it made for a nice short day out!”
