GMC May Bank Holiday Week 30th May 2016 Tara & Chris Russell jps66630/05/2016
An ideal day sunny cool air walking up from Glen Brittle campsite after a luxury coffee. The steady walk to the base of the great stone shoot an old volcanic crater, populated by a range of bivouac stone walls created by a bivouac building workshop it would seem. The stone shoot delivered what it promised a moving hillside on the way up and the way down. The summit was airy with tremendous views all round. Three young climbers were tripping across the sloping slabs above the void an all sides.. With tremendous effort we descended the GSS slipping, sliding and grinding or way down the GSS and on back to the Glen floor.david.walker4015/05/2016
