20.04.14 - Cragging at Benny Beg

This morning Ali and I headed off for some single pitch sport climbing and were well on our way through Glencoe before I realised I had left my rock shoes at home, so after a bit of Sunday morning grump we headed off again, with ALL of our kit this time!  Benny Beg, located near Crieff is a fantastic single pitch sports crag, ideal for building climbing confidence as it has loads of lower graded routes with most of them measuring between 8m and 12m high.  Ali managed to lead United Colours of Bennyton 3 and Bill and Benny the flowerpot men, before working on Ally's in Wonderland 3+ which she had backed off at the crux the last time.  This time she managed to lead it, and thanks to a generous passer by, got some great photos doing so!  After this I had a play around and lead some 4/5's before enjoying leading The Beggar, The Smiddy and Benny Lane, all great 6a's.  A great day chilling and climbing!
