The Edge of Darkness
© Dan Arkle, Apr 2011
I found these impressive boulders just to the right of Cir Mhor's South Ridge. Goat Fell and Glen Rosa are in the background. As the sun dipped, the shadow line raced accross the hillside at walking pace. I did a fun lip traverse as the arete itself was too hard for me -it looked V9 or more, does anyone know if its been done? Thanks to Jaime for helping.

Lovely photo, but absolutely the reason I stopped climbing, makes me nervous looking at the fall on that.

Thanks all. John- we just did the L-R lip traverse at highball V2. There are simply loads of quality boulders up there for those with tough skin to have a go at.
