Me Looking for friction on “Monkey Spanking”

Last night, Adam Russell, Neil Carnegie and I headed to Cambusbarron for an evening rock session in the sun. We started off by doing the awesome boulder problem “Monkey Spanking” which ascends the steep slab with friction only foot holds.
Once we had done this Adam went onto do “Big Country Dreams” which is a classic E4 crack climb that is home to some spicy moves between ok rests. 
Ahhhh jug!

Neil was trying a very technical E5 but decided to wait until next time to get on the sharp end. I decided to go for the flash on this route, but came off mid crux and as the light was almost gone I decided to wait until next time to have another go at the clean lead.
It was a fun evening, and it was good to be out on the rock.
