Climbed with Jamie Maxwell. He lead Jeune Ecole and I seconded. I then lead but opted to go straight up the crack rather than around the arete. Fun climb, good anchor opportunities at the top :)

Put off a bit by how overgrown the approach to each crag was! But the climbs were clean and on nice granite. Once the path was stomped down.

Tough wee overhanging face for a few moves, lots of protection. Disappointed by the brambles and discontinuous Nature of most of the crag.
