/ Pigs of Orchy- Beinn Udlaidh video
Check it out if you fancy.
Don't you speak Pig? He wanted to climb with you; he used to be a coward, but now he's got rasher.
Thanks, brings back memories
". This pitch is very exposed and steep for 30m and it seemed a bit hard for a IV. Maybe a touch of the MacLeod sandbag here"
Can't speak for him but we graded the Croc as IV back in 1980 (or thereabouts)as it was less than 500 feet so couldn't be V - times (& grades) change (& we had terrors, not these fancy modern tools :-)
Great effort Doug. These steep water ice lines must have been serious undertakings with a few snargs and warthogs.
The modern generation are just a wee bit spoiled with our racks of Turbo Expresses and fancy ergo tools!
Cracking video Davie, nicely edited.

You're in danger of getting your 15 mins of fame! Great stuff.
Very funny, enjoyed that, cheers.
Loveing the vids and the banter Davie , ice looked good .
I've been chased twice this year by the pigs lol big suckers them like
And yes, I have met those exact pigs this year, and no, they're not that big, for pigs.
"Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty but the pig enjoys it."
>no, they're not that big, for pigs.
They must have grown since you saw them. These were the size of Transit vans and their fangs dripped with the blood of many a fallen cragsman!
Loved it big man. Nice bit of Pooley on the sound track.
I've got a vid of one off the pigs jumping up onto the gate
Will try and download it
In the Martell on "Grab a Granny nights" I seem to remember the offer of a half pint of cider would fend of unwanted advances long enough to effect an escape!! Great vids and craic Davie, keep em coming.
