15m. Strenuous, exciting and with a welcome rest halfway up. Start opposite Balamory Boulder on the left side of the square rib of Prophet Wall. Climb the short arete to a diagonal crack, climb this to the roof where you can slot in a decent cam. Chalk up and mantle the roof on smears where easier ground takes you to a stake belay.

Arms trashed - weak. Lowered off after a couple of attempts on the crux. I'll be back. Very well protected - feels like HVS.

took 2 or 3 rests at the roof before figuring out the move ... didn't do a mantle.

A bit greasy feeling in places leading up to under the roof. Great moves to get out from under and over the roof, as many cams as you like to protect it

A cheeky little crux but we'll protected.

Rested under the roof trying to work the move. Worked it out. Finished the route then started chucking it down. Back for a clean assent soon.
