50m, 2 pitches. Very exciting slab climbing that could give HVS leaders nightmares and cold sweats, starting on a comfy "spectators ridge" on the frontal slab. P1 4c - Excellent teetering above the void with reasonable climbing and instant exposure leads to the easier rib and belay in the break. P2 5a - Place all your cams in the sharp flake and use it to pull on to the slab. Smear and balance up this - crux, serious fall potential - to a good hold and much easier climbing up and onto the next slab to finish.

Ticklists: Best slab climbs of the UK, Scottish 3 and 4 star multi-pitch routes.

First pitch only, which was excellent. Intended to continue but looked even more serious than I was expecting. I'm not even sure that flake would survive if you fell on cams placed in it.

Bloody brilliant. Done in one big pitch, would not be nice to fluff the crux!!

I led 2nd pitch. Took me a while to commit to the slab and not think of the long run out. Great climbing in October sun.

The climbing isn't very hard but it being a slab makes it feel very precarious with the lack of protection.

First HVS lead. Found the second pitch a bit thin and desperate, though looking at the description I might have been too far right.

As one pitch, the 2nd seamed pretty thin and under graded or maybe I should have been more on the arÍte?! Excellent
