Absolutely fantastic and a great choice to escape the baking heat. Interesting approach and tricky to locate start. Took a lot longer than the guidebook 90 mins.... Got sandbagged on the 5b pitch with the "go left around the roof" part resulting in tension traverses and all sorts of shenanigans! In the end went straight up the steep corner which had just enough gear anyway! Also don't think this is HS, solid VS 4c

Found the start more or less ok but its best to allow time for doing so. From the single bolt at the foot of the climb you first move left on to the neighbouring slab - our guide book said "slant right" which was not exactly helpful. Good climbing albeit not sustained - the 3rd and 4th pitches are the meat. It would be VS 4c on the Etive Slabs, so any idea of it being HS is daft.

Poor route description! No wonder so many people get lost...after pinnacle, walk up to crack - look right for crack. Then walk along two narrow walkways firstly 80m, then back about 30m...you'll see a solitary bolt. Here it says take the easiest and furthest right route up...wrong, this will lead you up a sketchy and loose gully - not fun! Head up the overlapping slabs corner pitch!

Very cool route, quite easy, although I think we did get a bit lost. I got smacked on the head by a 2lb rock from the party above. Helmet saved my life. Finished up Arete du Papillons.

Very enjoyable climbing - nice to come back and finish it after having to back off due to damp and cold in 2006. Led P2&4.
