It is the best pitch I've ever done. A vest top, the sun on our backs and just enough breeze to keep the midges away. Your on your own up there, enjoying incredible moves with bomber gear and a top that seriously feels like it is never, ever coming, but when it finally does....wow!
Steve Perry - Lead O/S - 18/Sep/15 with Masa
Amazing route!! Not sure about the grade, but whatever the grade is, this is one of the best routes in the country!
masa-alpin - 2nd β - 18/Sep/15 with Steve Perry
Probably the best trad route I've ever done. Enough holds to keep the climbing really pleasant, but the run outs and the length make it just spectacular to lead.

Went the right way this time instead of moving onto the arete of dire wall. I think the climbing on this is harder but much less scary than Dire wall as there are significantly better runners. either way, a great route!

Brilliant, long and sustained. Would have enjoyed much more if I could feel my hands and feet. Made it feel quite out-there, but it was pretty steady and pretty well protected with some run-out sections. Soft E2 if warm but brilliant nontheless. Diabaig is freaking beautiful, I'm coming back when it's warm!
