Sax Appeal V 4
An OK and obvious line. The guide describe the gear being poor, didn't seem a problem when I did it.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 20/Dec/08

Late start due to the Lecht road being shut for about half an hour or so. A friendly local unlocked it for me and told me how to drive around the top gate as well. The corrie was very windy. We finished up Fluted Buttress Direct. Will led the 1st pitch and had an excursion over to 'Cruising' but traversed left back to Sax Appeal. The traverse was trad. 5, no gear, bold and tricky. I led pitch 2 and 4 (2 was about III and could have done with decent ice, 4 was a grade 1 rock climb). There were three teams on Fluted Buttress Direct including us. Will went up the head wall to the right of FBD for the 3rd pitch. The wind that had battered us on the route faded to a whisper when we had finished. Off the route by 3pm and back at the car in the light - not bad for very nearly the shortest day of the year.

Felt much easier than overall V, possibly because conditions were very easy (turf frozen solid, rock lightly hoared). Not a climb I will remember tho.
