a crowd of us did the black route @ Kirrie on Saturday, brill weather and the crack was good too.
I met a rider from another party at the top of the chute on the McMoab section, he was so full of adrenaline just looking down the chute. I have done the chute before but it looked prtty scary on the day..however, I did manage to run the chute and which then shamed the younger rider into doing it.. MAN....! what an adrenaline rush the chute gave a person, the young rider and myself were high as "kites", but heartbreak hill brought me back to earth with a bump...LOL
anyways enjoy the pics.. right click an image and select "save image as", save to your desktop for a better view..

    Aye, I'll do that... I think it's the middle weekend of this month, just a wee group of us. We're doing Drumlanrig the next day but I have no idea if I'll be able to do that much riding before my knees unscrew and my legs drop off :lol:
