30m. Classic diagonal crack-line. Interesting all the way to a good rest before it steepens. Finish over the crux bulge leftwards (5c) or rightwards up the crack (6a) onto a rough slab and tree belay.

Ticklists: Very good routes in the UK, Glasgow Climbers Whistlestop.

Good climb. Bit wet in places and chased up by midge swarms... Very comfy and exited left-right. Donned the midge net and brought Pete up. Mega!

What a totally brilliant climb! Sam's first E3, a good lead with one sit on the rope before the crux. I too had a rest before the crux. Pumpy by the time you get to there!

So near, actually ran it out to the top and could see tree belay, then decided gear would be good and downclimbed to put it in, only to pump out on the second attempt! Doh. Good sustained crack action though, possibly 6a at the top??
