james1978 - AltLd - 26/Sep/14

Took the small man's variation on pitch 1 (neither of us tall enough to reach the first good hold on the slab). Pitch 2 is overgraded and too short.
Ian Jones - AltLd O/S - 31/Aug/14 with Peter Hemming

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 29/Jul/14

Great route, almost worth three stars, the pitches contrast well with technical slabby moves followed by steep, thuggy laybacking. Plenty of gear if you look around, spaced on first pitch though. Great finish is to finish up the arÍte to an airy mantle, heel hook at the top. Easier than Vindaloo and better protected.

On Ben's stag weekend. Led both pitches. Committing slab move above tiny gear! Upper corner was very good. Avoided the RH finish.

very wet, whole mountain seeping with about 3 showers while we climbed.
jazzyjackson - AltLd - 07/Sep/11 with sebrider

A really nice route climbed in less than nice weather! Another wet E1, ahh the Scottish 'summer' of 2011! Thought the moves to gain the slab were quite thin and committing.
