Rombold >>
This climb goes to the left of craig dhu wall up a large sloping left crackline. 2 overhangs on the left. Above the first overhang move out left smearing and holding on to the undercuts as you traverse left to a slanting crack and safety. Crux can be easily protected. The second pitch is interesting and moves over 2 overlaps to the top. A tree on the left can be used to abseil down with sling & link in situ.

Lead p1 to the hollow block belay. Tricky move, definitely 5a. Jess put in a good effort leading the top of the normal Creag Dhu Wall, considering she hasn't climbed outdoors for ages. A great little day out.
