Centre** VS 4b
[RB leading Centre at Cummingston, 3 kb]15m. Probably the easiest VS you could do. Start opposite Balamory Boulder and just right of the square-fronted rib. Climb the easy corner to a small bulge where the corner splits, head right using a dramatic-looking move to a good ledge. Enjoy climbing the corner to the top with runners aplenty, belay on stakes. Si Lynch 2009.
