Fab day, hot sunny midgeless. Led P1,3,5,6,7. Thought P1 closer to 5b and bold. Loved the second 'quartz vein' (looks like feldspar to me)pitch, 30m and no gear :-)P6 seemed desparate even at 5c, getting late and Helen tired so had to frig it. P7 felt fr 6c - 7a?First peg fell in half as I clipped it - eek! Many points of aid used as now very late. Missed exit path and did a pitch of vertical heather, got down in the dark. Fun fun fun.

Fell a couple of the times leading the last pitch, but managed the moves without aid eventually. Great day out!

Proper clasic run out slab climbing with silly traverses. Fell on second overlap and top pitch.
jamiefoxen - AltLd dog - 25/Sep/10 with Andy Latham
Awesome slab-age, led 1,3,5, and used loads of aid on the last pitch. Interesting and pretty run out climb in places. Keen to get on some more etive e2s. The pause was harder and nicer i reckon.
andymoin - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/10 with Mark Jarvie
A little aid may have been deployed on the top pitch
Lawrie Brand - AltLd - 08/May/10 with Dougie Harvey
ultimate struggle with pitches 7 & 8, aid was used :)
dougs1232 - AltLd - 08/May/10 with Lawrie Brand
Led P4,6,7,8. All free on the lead. The last pitch is well hard for E2. Would definitely get E3 if not for the piton runners. Lovely climbing but a bit of a meandering line..
Dr Toph - AltLd O/S - 16/Apr/10 with Francis, Ed
I wouldhttp://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/addlog.html?climb=458# give pitch 7 6a rather than 5c and climbing it free cannot be less than hard E3, even with plenty of pitons on the last pitch.
This does not detract from a stunning climb however. It just makes it the biggest sandbag I've ever climbed (and I mean that).

Awsome route. Wet in places. Several points of aid on last pitch.
alex_arthur - AltLd dog - 17/Oct/09 with Pete Abernethy
5c pitch is v tricky 'one move' and last pitch pretty strenuous. Physically harder than most E3's and many E4's!

Stewart's 5c pitch was hard and unusual so he handed it to me, after many different options I found one, tried it slipped and fell. Pissed off went straight back at it and managed that one move wonder. Stewart had an epic battle on the 6a pitch but had to use a pedal after being utterly spent. Good effort though
French Erick - AltLd dog - 09/Jun/07 with Stewart Brown
First outing on the slabs - absolute madness. 1 point of aid on the last pitch unfortunately - gave it a good fight though. Makes it E1

Cleanly led the first 6 pitches. Seconded the 7th with a little aid and attempted to lead the 8th pitch [6a] and got spat off at the horizontal break. Was tired and late so aided the rest. Will go back and lead clean at some point!

A good day out for a rope of 3 in a unique and phenominal setting. Top pitch was soaking but managed to free it clean. Only remembered bits of it from 28 years ago - one bit being the commentary from the tourist boat that chugs up and down the loch occasionally breaking the serenity of the place.
