Just stunning and bold feeling for the grade, all good pro though with run outs at easier sections

Moved together, great route. Don't know how it's got severe rating. Anyone who thinks it's severe is rubbish and should give up climbing immediately :)

nick ferro - Lead O/S - 20/Apr/14 with Oli Birkill, toolboxtim

P1+2 together to a stance in the sun just left of crest. Peter went straight up from there. Excellent climbing, bold at start then good gear. Descent is tricky or wet !
lithos - Lead - 20/Apr/14 with Peter Walker (YAC)

I led pitch 1 (guidebook 1+2). Not sure whether we went the right way near the top, the guidebook description is hopeless. Interesting descent through a waterfall.

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.
jjax - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/13 with jason

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.
