Today Jamie B and I made the most of another nice day and climbed The Pause (E1 5b) down at Etive Slabs. Slab climbing has never been my strongest discipline, however I was getting well into the 'zone'! Jamie let me lead every pitch (7 in total). This route is definitely worthy of its 4 stars, and definitely up there in my 'best routes of the season'. The rain stayed off all day, with only a couple of drops landing as I was on the 6th pitch. There was nobody else at the crag and with it bone dry and with a good breeze we had no midgies!
