3 days on Camaderry

Wandered around the slopes of Camaderry on Thursday. Came back on Friday with Ped and Diarmuid and our camping stuff.  Walked up from the hotel via the zigzags opposite the IMC hut and along the broad ridge leading to Camaderry East. Camped on the ridge and had a fire. Next day made out way back to the car via the mining village in Glendasan.  We climbed a few new problems. There is plenty of rock up there but not a huge amount of bouldering.

I did this arete. Pretty straighforward. 
Dropping into the cliffs on Saturday morning.
The rounded slab. There is another line on edges up the right hand side.

Ped trying the crack. Harder than it looks, the finish would need a good clean.

Diarmuid on the blank finish to the best line we found.
Another view of the line. The SS has nice moves on great slopers.

Ped after laybacking the crack.
The line of holds is clearly visible here. Ped flashed a line to the right of the rib.

Diarmuid climbed the slab on this boulder. I also cleaned the arete on the other side but it was a bit too hard for us
