P1 Only. Couldn't work out where the 2nd pitch was and the upper crag was wet anyhow - pity. Really nice 1st pitch though.

Fine climbing in a fine setting. Ignore guidebook approach directions and go what looks like the long way round instead, via the far shore, passing the bothy. Much easier than bushwhacking, and so quicker.

Great climb. Three good varied pitches (5a, 4c, 4c). Tim lead first, Dunc second and me the final. Only problem was being eaten alive by midges!
