I imagine it's a very enjoyable climb when you're not terminally pumped and don't kick out your gear at the top. First Fairhead E1!

Solid lead by Ed. Really enjoyable and mostly fairly straightforward climbing on jams and edges but two fairly hard crux sections make this no pushover at the grade.
Misha - 2nd - 19/Aug/13 with Ed

Fairly sustained, with a couple of harder sections, pleased to get them clean. Yet another route where big gear may help.
