Great route. Led pitchs 1, 3 & 5. Pretty clean for a lochnagar route. The odd bit of lichen does little to detract from this great route.

Great to get this done - felt like a bit of a steal given the weather. Had a bit of a battle on the last pitch - was good.

A great climb even if it is a bit gritty and lichenous in places. It all adds to the experience of a Lochnagar extreme. Pitch one is definitely the highlight, pitch 2 very good, pitch 3 airy but straightforward and pitch 4 a dirty thrutch which also requires a careful approach.

The top pitch ain't that bad - good climbing and situation, no worse than the average Stac Pollaidh route in terms of grit and lichen, and the first two pitches are clean and excellent. Worth knowing that a 60m ab from the summit of the pinnacle takes you into Black Spout Left hand.

Got rained off the second pitch, gutted! The first pitch is a belter though

Excellent route, with pitch 1 being the highlight! Surprisingly clean (except pitch 4) and dry at present.
