|Scairbhín||E1 5a, 5b|
|63m, 3 pitches. At the right hand side of the crag, some 5m to the right of The Unforgettable Fire is an obvious open square cut groove, some 5/6m high. This is the start of Scairibhín. |
1. 30m 5b Climb the crack line on the left of the groove to the end of the chimney. Move right and up, to a ledge beneath an overhanging bulge with an obvious weakness (some parties belay here before the crux moves). Climb up the groove onto obvious block ledge.
2. 22m 5b From this belay ledge climb directly up a shallow rounded groove. Continue up, emerging at the right hand corner of Burnt Ledge.
3. 13m 4b As for final pitch of The Unforgettable Fire.
