After climbing on the Etive Slabs the day before I was hoping for something with better protection, but alas - it was not meant to be. A truly sensational route up blank and featureless terrain, not one for the faint hearted...

Cold and bold - that's what I will remember about this one! ... and that we finished the day by swimming in the Etive River. (The climbing would have been really great had I been able to feel my hands and feet.)

2nd pitch wet but doable. This is a memorable collection of more of less well protected moments of awkwardness: involving ledges invariably facing the wrong way, protection not always confidence inspiring, some feet defined away (p2) ... A contorted line over steep, compact and solid rock.

Super duper, didn't expect to get on this this year/ever. Hard Rock induced a sleepless night before. Nick took a wee swing on the penultimate traversing pitch - mashed my belay hand a bit. Glad I got to second the hardest pitches! Beautiful route.

I lead the even pitches. Great day out - dry as it probably should be, beautiful blue sky and nobody else on the wall except our mates on the E4 to the right

Great lead from Ewan to hold it together on the very wet 2nd pitch with not exactly "amazing" gear :P Never a nails move on the route but plenty moments where you feel quite out there and exposed.

Captain Solo 02/Oct/15 AltLd

Never sure if I would ever get the chance to climb this route but the day finally arrived. Wet at the lower crux which made it more difficult, pretty dry after that. I particularly enjoyed p4, very absorbing, last 2 pitches fantastic exposure, led the evens. Life is good again.

Original finish for a number of reasons. Led all except second pitch due to partner's spasming fingers. Awesome route although pitch 2 is very serious and was still wet despite the recent heat wave. Will be back for the true finish but probably via another route.

did the odd pitches, busy on the wall today - not bad, the top two pitches made the route

Did the original finish rather than the true one but still a brilliant route, made especially memorable by the showers!

Did the top two pitches linked with Apparition, best two pitches on the cliff? Lovely moves in an incredible position. (Finally did the direct 10 years later!!)

Did the crux pitch but cured a wobble by touching the peg. So disgusted with myself, I abbed off from the belay. Hopefully I've grown up a bit since then.
