WOW! Really amazing corner/crack climbing, never strenuous due to allways having good bridging moves. First climb on Skye

lead the last easy pitch.
THardSevere - 2nd O/S - 06/Jun/10 with john proctor

Superb route that fully desrves the 3*. We climbed P1 on the right wall up twin cracks in the very rough gabbro then traversed left into the top of the corner. easy for 4c but great quality. The corner above is steep, sustained but honest. Worth the walk in!
