This climb is in 6 logbooks, and on no wishlists.
It's been a long wait in two respects; I've wanted to lead this route since I first saw it in 1996 and secondly I have not climbed anything for a few years, so the wait is over for both reasons.
The route is good, the first roof is awkward and I went too far over to the left to get past it, lured by the sight of two bits of in-situ gear. Getting back was committing. You can get an arm-bar rest on the second roof, so it didn't feel so hard. We scrambled over to the top of Fallout Corner to abb off.
The weather was pretty exceptional, baking hot and not a breath of wind. Driving through Aviemore the car registered 30 degrees outside.
