Took Latter's guide and assumed this was VDiff and appropriate for a wet day. Wet, slimy and a typically Scottish day out, but great fun nonetheless. Went off route a bit on the second pitch.

Led pitches 2 and 3 in the one go as missed the 2nd belay stance. great climbing, great situation. fabulous handholds and grippy rock. Loved it.

Repeat, but couldn't remember it until I was stood at the bottom...Wanted to do the long crack but party of 3 was on it, did this and time up, had to drive home. Good climb, excellent weather!

Great steep climbing on excellent rock. For those people who say it isn't well protected.......I think you need to search harder. One part of the climb is a little bit run out before the first belay but apart from that it is ok. Take a few extra small/medium nuts if you have them.
