Consolation prize after bailing on Bludgers on Etive Mor, great hard first pitch which doesn't let up after the crack!

Just to let previous logger know the tree is now only a stump.
philhilo - AltLd O/S - 31/Aug/15 with Helen E
The hollow thunk that resonated from the tree belay at the top of p1 echoed in my head as I slipped arse over tit after a lapse in concentration in the initial grubby groove of p2. Belay thoroughly tested. Great route!!
steely - AltLd - 23/May/15 with duncan campbell
Iain's factor 2 at the first belay woke us up from slow progress. With bruised body Iain continued with aplomb. With my right hand blistered, wounded and rope burned I continued with one hand. Classic hard rock terrain providing excitement as it should. Top route!

Awesome route definitely do the last pitches, they are well worth it. We and the party ahead of us ran pitches 3 & 4 together no problem. Ignore the 30m run out comment on here there is loads of gear on commited sections, gets a bit thin on the easy slab at the top, 4c all the way.

Lead P1 and 3. P1 is pretty awkward to say the least. A double or even triple set of cam sizes 0.5,1 and 1.5 would make this refreshingly easy to protect without obscuring the best jams! the exposure hits you on P2 and the belay seems tiny til you reach the one on P3! all in all an excellent route, even if it was a little wet in places with all the recent rain.

Rope drag led to lots of slack on crux (having joined P1 & part of 2); tricky. Traversed way too high on upper pitch after retrieving gear from up the e2... bit sketchy with nice lob-potential.
