[Topo for Auchinstarry car park area, 2 kb]15m. The fine clean open groove to the right of Mr men gives an enjoyable problem with a delicate reach in the lower section though the top section is on poor rock.

johannes - Lead O/S - 24/Apr/13

Nice. One good runner, but exactly where you need it.
RKernan - Lead O/S - 01/Apr/13 with Gareth Robinson

Brushed / excavated the crack so its a bit more climbable now. Really nice moves in first half. Top's still a bit chossy but just step right very near the top to avoid the worst of it.
