Good use of ticket: Robs Reed

Arno, Robbie and I all obtained an exit ticket for a few hours on Sunday. The forecast was for heavy rain showers after 13 h and so we went to Robs Reed for some quick sport climbing. After a warm up we went for 'High Voltage' F6b+ with crimpy sandstone followed by a conglomerate crack. We then went for 'grasping the Nettle' F6c which seems doable and then entertained ourselves with 'Welcome To The Big Pocket' at F6b+. Various Etchachan members (don't mention the exit ticket) walked past murmuring 'sandbag of the crag'. Dynoing to the pocket was tricky enough but getting from the pocket to the roof was like wrestling a wild boar covered in vaseline:

Here is Arno going for the final pump...

... and here is the view from Robs Reed towards bonny Kirriemuir.
