Don't be tight...this can have two stars, just cause it has a nice view, has good gear and is near Edinburgh...oh and its rock and rock is good...whatever form (ish!):)

Great route. Crux was brilliant once I got a bit of gear in to protect the move. Lower moves are polished so care needed.

Hardest climb for a long time, well chuffed, fitness campaign seems to be working.

Started up wobble, then verred off to the left, so I think I ended up on Via Macniven...
