Led p1 and seconded p2. Went as far as the upper tier then transferred onto hiccup. Would give one star rather than two.

Not a bad route, but don't think it's of Classic status. I did 1,2,4,5 pitches. Chimney pitch and last pitch were fun, rest scrappy and a bit pointless...

I lead pitches 1, 3, 5 and 7. There are 2 "overhanging chimneys" next to each other at pitch 6, we did the left one. Someone put a video on youtube, I found this video very helpful for route finding https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5yEckFb5Hs8 Thank you!

I've done this before in nice dry conditions. Today the Met Office forecast was wrong, so the majority of it was wet. Still a good route- definitely climbable in wet nick.

A great day out! Remained dry all day. Superb mountain route with airy traverses. We combined this with curved ridge to take us to the top.

with Derek Graham

Very pleasant. Traverse under overhang exhilarating. Final pitch OK but pro is poor.

with Maarten Krabbendam
Colin Matheson 14/Aug/10 AltLd

Some bits of the route we definitely recognised from the description. Correct start, found the Heather Ledge (even if Steve did go to the top left instead of bottom right), found the recess (not sure about the bit after), definitely a chimney (my sort of pitch) then the slightly scary shuffle down the gravel before heading up the crack. Found our way to Rannoch Wall eventually.
