Great Arch of Pabbay

Crux of pitch 2


In the Outer Hebrides of Scotland there’s a climb still waiting for its first, clean ascent.

a complex arrangement of poor holds that you'd never see from under the roof looked to be the crux. 95 metres off the boulder field below with the waves crashing and a freezing gale blowing the ropes all over the place and tangling up slings and jumars and other bits of random kit I roughly memorised the position of these holds before I got the hell out of there and kind of hoped it went away!"
