The Plums of Ratho* 7b
18m. Wall left of Grapes of Ratho with desperate reachy climbing and complicated moves on side-pulls in the middle, to a slight easing at the finish. Still some crumbly rock.

Access the ledge via an in situ rope just left of welcome to the cruise

OK till 4th bolt. Very tricky for next couple of moves. Poor quality rock.

Very nice up to the fourth bolt with reasonable feeling crimping and side pulling. Shut down above by some small crimps to more nasty looking small crimps will get a tr on it soon. The working begins... BTW thanks to whoever bolted this its been crying out for it.

This route is changing by the day! Stop start climbing on snappy crimps. Could be good with a bit of traffic. 7b in its current state! Will prob be a different grade tomor!
