Stopped off to do this on the traverse, great day out! Easily HVS, the whole route is fairly loose and the one piece of gear in the first 15m, including the crux, suggests this.

Nice situation, very Scottish and so hard for VS. Led short traversey pitch 3 to poor belay.

First time up this I thoughth it was a loose nightmare. 15 years later I found it to be very clean. Definitely hard moves but all there if you look around enough. Big climb!

Missed the last ferry over on Saturday and had to wait until the first one on Monday! There was no Skye Bridge in those days, and the "kept" Sundays in that area of the world!
