To the max
Monday, 24th Jul 2006 
Jo Boyd pulls through the crux of The Blue Max (E1) on Creag an Dubh Loch, south of Lochnagar.

We'd cycled into the Glas-Allt-Sheil bothy the night before and walked up to the sunny crag in the morning. Being north facing though the sun left us after midday and it got a little cool in the shade! Meanwhile Mal and I were tackling Cyclops (HVS), a great route with some wonderfully delicate climbing.
