January 2014, New routes on Creag an Dubh Loch

Nick Bullock lit a match under Canadian’s when he and Greg Boswell visited in the October 2013. They climbed a number of Rockies testpieces such as Rocket Man and Man Yoga. Since returning to Europe, the pair have continued to send.

Scotland has had a number of new routes climbed this season. Good conditions and big psyche among the locals have led to first ascents and notable repeats.

“It was finally decided that Greg, Will and I would arrive at the car park with a rack of gear each, push bikes, ropes and sustenance to climb in the Dubh Loch and as many chill pills as possible and fit with whatever plan Guy Robertson came up with,” said Bullock.
