No style points for my ascent of the initial groove and crack - most of my body was used. Nice jamming on the top section.

Heavy hail stones when we left Glasgow, so the crag was a bit wet. Even wetter by the time we left as heavy rain started.
kmac - TR dog - 28/Apr/08 with Graeme Richmond

cheated at start by faffing on the thin crack to the right then went up the easy way on the far right thus avoiding the hard damp spyrogiro stat
