newtonmore - 01/Jul/15

I lead P1, 3 and Craig did P2. It started raining while abseiling in, and the rock was soaking wet by the time we started (eventually it dried out by the time Craig climbed P2, but then it started raining again by the time I started seconding P2 and for the rest). Character building!

A very wet first pitch and an extremely cold belay in the wind. Nice to get the route ticked however. Great route.

did in 2 pitches, belayed below the roof, just above the thin section -- seemed more logical this way.

Viv lead P1&3, and I, P2. What a route! Maybe the best E2 I have ever climbed. It looks as if the route was designed to be made for climbers, with fantastic incut holds after holds on this steep 100-metre wall.

Bit of a variation, started up Silkie then did in 1 pitch from just below the crux of that route.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 09/Jul/13

Stunning route, I lead P2 after failing to find the start of P1 and ending up on the silkie by mistake. Brilliant climbing with perfect gear, if a little spaced at times. Very straightforward for the grade and just great fun :D
JamieSparkes - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/13 with Jon dL

Superb route on superb rock and it was sunny. The juggy overhangs were amazing. It seemed easy for an E2.

Followed Richard up P1 and started up p2, but bottled the bold moves on the slab. Got top rope from David Toon to the belay. Richard led p3. A marvellous route to do on my birthday!
