10m. Follow the larger of the two cracks to the large ledge on the left of the slab.
5m Carry on up diagonally left to a smaller ledge near the side of the slab.
15m Follow the cracks above to a sentry box belay stance.
30m Follow the crack above the belay to a large ledge with a small chimney to the rear, enter the chimney and make an awkward move to top out. Large block on left for a sling belay. OR Go up to the right of the chimney (easier with a rucksack). Large block on right for a sling belay.

Alt lead 2 pitches then soloed from top of the slab onwards. A little damp so glad of the rope on the lower third of the slab.

Lovely line with a more difficult exit from the slab by a rising rightward traverse.

No midges this time, but it was a bit damp. Amazing feeling at getting to the sentry box stance (again!) stopping and turning around and going "Wow. I just soloed all that way!!!"

The first time I ever placed gear :-) Oh, the memories...sitting in the sentry box stance getting eaten alive by midges and being checked out by a search and rescue helicoper with their searchlight on. I wasn't waving, I was hitting my helmet to get the midges out.
