Conditions cold and damp with light snow showers. Note equipment, or lack of it! Climbed before harnesses, chalk, wire nuts and Friends. Graded VS in 1969 [the maximum grade in Scotland at that time], only graded Extreme in late 1970's.

Respect!
Have lead and seconded that pitch and it is scary enough with modern kit.

Yeah well done, this. Has been the most surprisingly out of condition hard rock route I have done, overgrown and a bit more serious that I had imagined. Shame really as it's regularly dry and only 20min from the road.
