Now, here's a first - streapadair posts a climbing photo on UKClimbing.
RB at 14 is the current Scotland South indoor climbing champion in her age group (14-16), but her mum (Sonya) wanted to introduce her to a big mountain route, and Tower Ridge on a fine summer day was ideal. In the event she cruised it, roped only at the Gap (and only at mum's insistence). Then for an encore she scampered along the arÍte and over CMD.

Not quite an introduction, seen as she's led a VS mountain route in the Lakes, cruised up Magic Crack (HVS) in the Cairngorms and been up to just under 3000m in the Pyrenees.
But yeah, was good to get her out into the hills and rock instead of scampering up 7a's on plastic, lol!

You'll never make a journalist, sweetheart, letting the facts get in the way of a nice story.
