Solar Wind* HVS 5a
[Right hand buttress of Sgurr nan Gabhar (Ozone Layer to Solar Winds). , 2 kb]45m. This takes the crack at the very edge of the buttress, to the right of High Plains Drifter. Once above the overlap on the slab, head over the heathery groove, to pull round the roof by the crack and right facing corner. Fairly good climbing despite being close to the vegetation.

This is the same route as the 'VS 5a' - there are more climbs than cracks listed in the guidebooks for this crag. Somewhere between VS 5a and HVS 5a. Well protected on the lower tricky section. Lovely moves.
