Rites of Passage. Despite memory being a fickle thing, some climbs live long in our memories.  They are moments so powerful that they remain recognisable in our minds forever. They are the rites of passage that make us into the climbers that we are, and into the climbers that we’ll become. It may be our first climb, disorienting and fumbling or breaking into a new grade; it may be pushing our limit or taking that first big leader fall; or it may be ticking all the classics at our favourite crag or aspiring to the next challenge.

“I am a medicinal horticulturalist, not a herbalist”, grins Nick Quinn, the creator of the Castle’s range of lotions, potions, balms, body washes and of course garden teas. Having been part of the Castle garden since the beginning, Nick has developed this organic range which started with a personal mission.

Buying climbing shoes is always a bit of a mission. ‘Are they too tight?’, ‘Will they stretch?’, ‘What will they feel like on the wall?’ are some of the many questions that pop into our head as we slip our foot into an unknown territory.
Whether you are a first time buyer or a climbing veteran, buying a new climbing shoe comes with a degree of uncertainty. Unlike your street shoe size, different brands have different sizing, and different models within these brands also have different sizing. Phew! The task ahead is to find a shoe that not only fits, but that also performs.

This is a write up of the Cuillin Ridge which I did in September 2014. I've put together a PDF download which contains some useful hints and tips on how to get the most of your trip and the climbing gear and other equipment that you might need for the traverse.

Above is the first part of the ridge approaching the TD Gap and Sgurr Alasdair.
