Blaven, and ‘Stairway to Heaven’ video

I had a rare day out on the Cuillin, taking some photos of Blair Fyffe and Tony Stone on ‘Stairway to Heaven’, E5 6a, on Blaven. A rarely climbed route, first climbed in 1977 by Mick Fowler and Phil Thomas. I took a short section of video of Tony seconding the first pitch.
