Anach Mor - Fort William- Tenacity

Today we made the drive over to Anach More, Nevis Range ski area and walked from the valley car park up the world class down hill mountain bike track and then up to the summit. It takes a while but the cable car is closed for maintenance and will be running this weekend for the ski and winter climbing season. Andy, Jon and I climbed a previously unclimbed line under pretty good winter condition with good ice and frozen turf placements for most of the way up the climb. We named it Tenacity and its graded VI,6.
The chaps at Nevis Range asked me to inform everyone that the Climbers Cable Car will commence at 0900hrs for this Saturday and Sunday and then it will be running at 0800hrs daily. Details will also be available on their web site!
