Having made it to the central ledge, the lads swapped roles and Mark led pitch two.
I watched for a while and then went to explore.
There are paths all along the base of the quarry with mounds of heather and lots of silver birch trees.
By the time Mark was finishing pitch two, I had found a much easier scramble to the top and was waiting (very quietly, so as not to startle him - Did I mention that I get twitchy when they top out?)
It looks an awfully long way down!
