Bucket list tick this one! What an incredible route - sustained, (mostly) well protected and engaging climbing. Got off route slightly on pitch 3/4 as couldn't make the guidebook description fit, probably did pitch 4 of Black Mamba. Quartz corner a little damp and last pitch minging but otherwise dry. Stunning weather and had the place to ourselves!

Onsighted first 2 pitches, mostly dry but damp where it mattered! Crux overlap was minging and scary. Bailed off due to impending darkness/doom. Abbed from sketchy in situ nut/peg around p2 belay nr Black Mamba, found spike (much better) about 5m below, left tat there. 55m ab (climbing on a 50 and a 60) just about to the deck

Stayed in the bothy the night before then walked in, climbed it alpine style. Went off route at times due to it being sopping wet in places but did all the major cruxes of the pitches.

Lead even pitches. Great sustained route with many brilliant pitches but also a couple of poor ones. All dry apart from last pitch.

A great day out! Unfortunately took a minor slip traversing right across some blank slabs on P3. Not sure if we should have traversed higher up as we were struggling to follow the route description at that point....

Did the first pitch then it start pouring. Within 2 minutes I found myself drenching in a waterfall! Shame as it was such a nice route. I left a small offset nut and a blue krab for retreat.

Rained till noon but blew dry by 5. Set off up five good pitches and scramble up the VDiff escape to the sound of Loons howling on the loch.
