Callum_Johnson - AltLd O/S - 27/Jul/14 with Uisdean

John Carney - Mar/13 with Adam George

Ab was iffy, should have ignored Fr guide and just followed the big chains. Route we did didn't belay at these but felt right at the grade. L3 straight up right past top of big flake, L4 up and then traverse delicately right into scoop for 3 bolt belay, L5 up steeply and back left, L6 lovely juggy steep wall to big ledge, L7 excellent steeper finish.
