[Smash and Grab, Carn Barra - Pete on the crux moves to join Glass Arete., 3 kb]The widening corner-crack, split by good ledges, gives a challenging pitch that would not feel out of place on a Grit Edge. Start on the left-hand side of the ledge beneath the widening crack. 17m. Follow the crack to the second ledge and prepare for battle with the tougher upper section that requires some large gear to protect it adequately. © ROCKFAX
