Stone of Destiny*** 6c+
[A camel - a man - a thistle., 3 kb]30m. The sustained line up the centre of the wall which is almost always dry. Gaining and leaving the biggest "pebble" on the crag will constitute the crux for most people. One of the best routes at the grade in the country.

First sport climb ever! Rested a few times although i think getting used to conglomerate climbing would help. Nice route though.

Excellent climb with nice moves- done in the dark with a head torch cos it looked so good! Plenty of holds all the way, just a bit sustained.
