Scottish Highlands* HVS 5a
12m. From the start of Dies Irae climb up leftwards to gain the start of the obvious diagonal overlap. Follow this into the main central groove. Climb the groove until a diagonal break leads leftwards across the top of the slab to an easy finish.

Finally got this after some route-finding beta from people. Good value for money, committing move onto a good sloper after a reasonably delicate slab, then a fun rising traverse. Worth it.

Hnd a bit of a moment on th upper section underclings as could not reach for my cams on the opposite side of my harness - manned up and climbed on! Wombly block near the top was not the best thing to calm the nerves though. Great start and traverse near the top - good little outing if a little short.

Climbed the initial slab clean, got to the block before the groove, couldn't figure tricky moves to get established on the block before the final slab, bagged off and finished up the VS next door (which makes a contrived but alright line in it's own right ;) )

some bold moves, we did incorrect finish from the topo pic provided by kafoozalem (straight up). need to pay attention to guides!

Should of placed some runners, fell from wet smeary footholds on the beginning of the final traverse and swang a long way off the route. Great fun up to there though
