Great route in a cracking location. Thought the initial moves on p3 were worth 5b

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 24/Jul/11

Sweet first pitch. like rounded protectionless cairngorm granit but the opposite. the star system doesn't do it justice. Definatly 4c,4a,5b as in the SMC and not the GLatter

7hrs round trip (with bikes from the south). Good route and a nice day out. Maybe a touch generous with *** though!
