Intended on climbing Ardverikie Wall but due to seepage we climbed this steeper route instead as it looked dry-ish. It started raining quite heavily when we got to the garden unfortunately. Some good climbing amidst a lot of heather! Beautiful positions. Tough second 5a pitch (above garden) due to greasy crack and wobbly block...

Lead p1, Andy p2 then decided it was time for dinner and traversed off via the Garden. Will have to go back for the rest as the first 2 pitches were great!
