Old Man of Hoy- forecast windy!
Off to climb the Old Man of Hoy on Friday evening with Craig and Mark- we're planning to get some practice in on shorter seacliffs at Yesnaby first, and then on to the Old Man of Hoy (weather depending!) Hopefully it will remain dry, the strong winds forecast shouldn't be too much of a problem except for the abseil. Last time I was there some poor unfortnate had lost 2 9mm ropes which had wrapped themselves around the stack and were irretrievable.
