30m. An indefinite line up the broad buttress. Protection is just adequate and therefore this is probably Severe.

Not much gear, but easy climbing. Wouldn't rate this as any higher that a difficult. Defo not an MS as stated on UKC
jacobfinn - 2nd β - 11/Apr/10 with Alan, jjax

no harder than a difficult. But I hate long runouts and faffed about too much trying to get tiny bits of gear in the wee holes.

Jen80 - 2nd - 04/Apr/10 with Cooper

Much tougher than expected having read the route as a Diff or Severe depending on line. Little gear (two iffy cams, followed by two spaced micro nuts!). Good belay stance on top of the large boulder at the top right. Ab'ed down Hairy Gully to finish. Wet!

Mike Hatherly - Lead β - 2010

Not sure where the MS grade on here comes from, sure the Highland Outcrops guide gives Diff? Although quite steep and poor gear not sure it warrants more than VDiff at most.
isi_o - Solo - 13/Sep/09

katsnell - Lead - 25/Aug/09

we both soloed this as a warm up. Would say its more towards the diff mark than MS.

Surely this is undergraded; there is hardly any gear and the holds are a bit wierd. Give it severe.
Ian Jones - Lead O/S - 30/Sep/07 with Gwydion ball and Pavla Pospichalova

Made the same grade mistake as I thought this was a Diff too, bit scarce on the gear for a first lead in 10 years!
