The obvious crack behind a tree, with an entertaining finish. Start on the wall just right of "Shorskred" and "Between Contracts" (bouldery to a ledge beside the tree) to avoid the minging scramble.

Ticklists: Scottish Central Belt HVS.

Rained a bit before, so very greasy and jugs were full of water. In-situ cam near the top was very helpful.

Revenge was sweet! First HVS lead, albeit not onsight.

adamarchie 25/Jul Lead dnf

Fell off at the first crux section: couldn't set the jam above the jugs with my left hand. Fortunately the gear held and I landed softly on the ledge, bum first, though with what turned out to be a mega rope burn all the way down my right forearm. Blood everywah. Tried 3 or 4 more times but nae luck.

adamarchie 25/Jul 2nd RP

Seconded it clean first time, laybacking the move I'd fallen off repeatedly on lead. The crux was pretty awful, but I found a way round it! Though thereafter Dave lowered me down to try it the traditional way - which I also managed, though not before a bit of toing and froing.

First HVS on lead :) The psychological crux for me was the move into the chimney before the top out, above gear onto rounded holds. Good variety of moves on the whole and ample opportunities for cam placements.
