A well-travelled classic. Starting on the rail, traverse the wall L-R and finish around the arete. Pumpy, sequency and polished. (BiS prob 1)

Linked with R-L. Did it high, without the leg drop. Feels about the same grade but not quite as nice as R-L

quite a fun problem, defiantly worth a look if you have a spare hour on a nice sunny evening

First day on the crags in lovely warm early march sun. Glad winter spent inside made this the easiest I've found it. Just got to link the r-l now...

second go today, 3 sessions total. R-L feels considerably harder

Feels good to be able to climb this again after having it dialled last year then a mental block/general weakness this year. Felt easy tonight.

At least the 50th time. May need to be a little more imaginative in problem/venue choice! This is definitely Font 6b+ and the crux is very easy british 6b. Not sure why it gets such a high grade? Apparently font 7a in the guidebook?

getting to it with all the ice was harder than the climbing got it first go which was nice as the landing looked painful. Quite suprised first time ive climbed inside or out for ages. More than made up for the aviemore train being cancelled this morning. 6th time.

Probably stop recording repeats now, definitely have it dialled.

Cant believe ive finally nailed it. 1st go after many many dissapointing sessions. Had a quick warm up at blackford then decided it to give it a wee attempt. Very chuffed!!

joe larner 06/Oct/08 Sent x

4th go. Got some monumentally good advie on how to do crux move. Will be the first traverse of many no doubt, as its only ten minutes away from home.

Feels more like a Font 6b+.

Finally! Been trying it off and on for about 3 years; sometimes obsessed, then ignoring it for months. After a wee while off again got it 4th try today well chuffed.

took me a few trips to the black wall to link all the moves but finally got it and returned to do it a few times since i first got it.

Finally got this after about 10 sessions, toping out around the arÍte with much relief. Brilliant balancy and powerful crux sequence.

Well might as well finally add this to the logbook - have done it enough times!! Sticky and hot today so not as easy as usual!
