The Raven** VS 4c
50m. Starts at the right end of a small overhang at the left base of the crag. Climb up the obvious right trending flakes, with good gear. The first section is excellent with sound clean rock. However as the angle tilts back the slab becomes mossy and dirty! From here you can either trend right up the slab before heading back left near the top OR you can head left up a dirty gully. If you take the left hand option after 35m (from the base of the route) you come to a block with tat on and a tree that can be used as a belay and abseil decent. The top slabs are not really worth it being dirty and with little protection!

The right slanting flake is some of the best VS climbing I've ever done in Scotland, 4**** if there using that. I thought it was very committing onto the slab above gear, then no gear, then some crap gear that wouldn't hold a kitten. Then it trends back left with a no gear, then crap climbing with no gear, then finally some gear. Do it for the bottom its worth it.
