Dotterel and Snow Bunting
We have had a very active day today. The first picture is of Andy on Snow Bunting. This is a new grade 111.4 mixed clmb which we climbed today, its 300 metres long and was very interesting climbing.
The next photo shows another new climb we named Dottrele, which we graded V.5 and is 130 meteres long. The climbs are on either side of Central Gully on Lurchers Crag.
The Cairngorms are the stronghold for the Dottrele here in the UK. It's a medium sized member of the plover family which visits in the summer only, usually at the spring migration and they spend the summer nesting here.
