Fingers Ridge Direct* VS 4c
[MJ not about to stand on the peg, 2 kb]One of the few good clean pieces of rock in the coire. The route is fairly sustained at 4b with just a couple of 4c moves. Protection is quite thin in places. The only real negative is that the route is very escapable, from the belays and often mid pitch.

Ticklists: Scottish Mid-Grade Multi-Pitch, 2013 Scottish Multi Pitch Mission.

Enjoyable climb but scotland how can you manage to be so cold in late July. Robyn and I found it fairly straightforward for VS. I would probably say HS

Good fun in the wind. Got three bits of gear that had been left as well which was even better, some folk are useless at gear retreval.
Sandy Simpson - AltLd - 20/Sep/09 with brian duthie

Rain and wind ensured cold fingers while climbing and a cold body on belay duty but a good day out none the less.

Not a bad climb apart from the first pitch. Done as plan 'b' after clag and crowds put us off Prore/Fallout Corner/Savage Slit.
