Whispering Crack*** E3 5c
[Joyous jamming!, 4 kb]55m. A brilliant classic: The obvious slanting crack at the right end of the right crag is very much like 5 gritstone HVS 5bs stacked on top of each other, and would make a perfect first E3 for the indoor wall trained climber. Climb a 10m 5a pitch to a hanging belay (or use 60m ropes), then follow the massive crack past hard moves into a smooth slanting pod and continual interest all the way to the top. Stakes a long way back.

Ticklists: Ultimate Scottish Rock, Scottish 3 and 4 star multi-pitch routes, Skye Rock, Crack apprenticeship - Highland North.

First pitch was fine but jugged up most of the second pitch because the rain washed it out. Masa did a great lead in the wet!

The heaven opened up properly when I set off the 45m P2. Awesome climbing from hand, fist to offwidth cracks, some of which are flared and insecure, and it keeps coming! One of the best E3s I have ever done. The wet rock upped the level of excitement (aka worry) for a (good) notch...
