Jamie Murray showed Richie Betts and Mike Lee the 'Jamie' boulder near Farr in Inverness, which is a clean gneiss boulder revealed from the cleared forest with plenty of mid-grade lines on it. Mike climbed the Farr Side Facet (sit start) Font 7c.
On to Dave MacLeod - who after climbing Beatle Back (10m Font 7c traverse) added on Burning the Candle, a power 7b+. Not only that, he linked it into Tinderbox (7a) on the left, with a bat-hang rest and sloper sequence to join Beatleback. Not only that, but it starts at the far left of the main crag. About forty metres, all told, an 8c+ route or thereabouts... anyway, he's close to the link, but no cigar yet. See the UKC news item with video HERE.
Some of Dave's other new problems include: Spirit Crack Font 7b, Bear Trap Prow Font 8a+ & Frontal System Font 8a.
Russell Birkett visited Weem and added a couple of long pumpy traverses: Getting the Chop. Font 7a+**, Too Hard Too Far. Font 7a***. Also Magnus Johnson has been developing the mossy schist boulders near Kinlochleven.
