Hidden - 2010

Scottish Rock and SMC guide have this route as VS 5a, which is maybe closer to what I'd say the grade is, but I placed gear halfway up crack, then downclimbed a bit before finishing it, which made it less strenuous. found decent holds outwith the crack as well. nice-looking route, though quite short.
