Tainted Elixir*** V 6
[Tainted Elixir, V,6***. Northern Corries climbing in solitude., 2 kb]65m, 3 pitches. The left hand of the three parallel lines is the most obvious, starting with a right facing corner. Belay at the base of the corner.
1. 25m From the belay climb up between the corner and a large perched block. Surmount the bulging corner and continue up to belay on the left.
2. 25m Climb the cracked wall above and continue with interest to an overhanging barrier wall split by a tapered slot. Pull up and into the slot, then exit and go left to belay overlooking Toxic Brew. Excellent pitch.
3. 20m Step into Toxic Brew groove and follow to top.

Wild walk in, great route (long walk though), end of the winter for me. Reliable crag given its height.

Snowing walking in, wet, driving wind & snow from the col, rime forming on rocks, jackets freezing up! Not a comfortable start to the day, the sheltered coire stripping as the day continued, glad we made the effort!
