What perfect weather, looks like you had a great day! Makes me want to just quit work and drive up to the hills! Anyone else get that feeling on a Monday?

Looks like a glorious day :D .
On the iPhone, I can recommend the standard technique of putting it in a bowl of rice in a dry place. I fell in a river with mine :crazy: but about 3 weeks in rice in the airing cupboard brought it back to life - for a couple of years anyway.

What a perfect day for the Buachaille. Superb.

Did this traverse in June 2001, starting up Curved Ridge. At this time of year I guess CR could have been a bit damp and greasy, despite the sunshine. Nice pic of Agag's Groove - very exposed for a VDiff, esp on pitch 4 as you say (did that in 1983 and I wouldn't mind doing it again - you've given me an idea, thanks!). :D
