Dumby Litter Pick - this Saturday!

Go cleaning and climbing ... just to let you know there will be a Dumby clean-up this Saturday 23rd November 10am to 2pm (at the latest) - plenty of bods will make light work round the boulders and environs.

Linda Adam from West Dunbartonshire Council has organised a skip and all the cleaning gear like last time, including gloves, sharp-boxes, bin bags and those grabby things, so you just need to come dressed for a cold dry day, by the looks of the forecast. TCA will be organising events round this, to be announced.The council will strim the area of vegetation so we can make a decent fist of clearing the whole area again.

Some anti-erosion work may be going on so bring a bucket and spade if you like. There's plenty of gravel on the beach to place around some muddy holes which are forming under popular take-off aprons.

And it looks like perfect bouldering weather, so bring your kit as well!

Torridon Bouldering Guide

It's here! The best venue in Scotland  - a long-anticipated guide to the bouldering, from local gurus Ian Taylor and Richie Betts, who have both done a grand job of collating all the elegant problems so far etched out on the endless tiers of finely-grained red sandstone. From 'The Celtic Jumble' up the hill on the slopes towards Liathach, and south beyond to areas such as Seana Mheallan - all are given due attention. 92 pages of enough bouldering to drive you to tiers (!).

Available here through Stone Country for £9.99 plus some P&P.>>>
