Dan did the first pitch, then we split the quality 2nd pitch. I did the crack up to the roof, Dan did the roof. Good climb.

Led pitch one, very stiff and bold start for HS I thought. Be aware of pitch 1 as the block is loose with a few sustained 4b-4c moves. Pitch 2 is just great climbing, tantalisingly thin feeling and sustained but the jugs are there!!!

Top pitch is probably the best i've done in the mountains so far, absolutely superb pitch of climbing! Start is really quite stiff for 4b if you go straight through the thin crack...! Couple of 4b moves elsewhere but really just enjoyable and flowing climbing.

Top pitch is probably the best easier pitch in Glencoe..

Jim at Craigdhu 26/Aug/12 Lead O/S

On this cold day, it felt like sustained 4b and so one of the best VS's I've climbed in a long time. Our crux was the steep moves on to the loose block at the start of P1, which requires great care.

Climbed along with Weeping Wall, Archer Ridge then Nirvana Wall - three brilliant routes and good old Aonach Dubh kept the best 'till last. Kurt Cobain - eat your heart out. Oops sorry - he already did.

The top crack felt like 4b, great exposed climbing, the bottom half is a bit scrappy though.

alan moore ?/Mar/10 Solo

Very Good. Spoilt only by escape opitions near top.

Only a hill 09/Jun/09 AltLd O/S

A gem of a climb. I led the first pitch, which I found sustained for a few moves but well-protected. Jack led the exposed upper pitch which was simply magnificent.
