Says the 2nd pitch is 5b in Scottish Rock Guide book. Lead pitches 2 and 4. Went on to do Corner Slab and Trophy Crack as part of an amazing link up, one of my best days out on rock ever!!colin.morrison - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/13 with ewan
A good climb for the lower tier but a bit close to Cioch Direct.
Captain Solo - AltLd - 21/Jul/13 with Colin M
Bailed on to Cioch Direct after second pitch, think I might have tried Direct as well.

Fantastic rock. P2 had some pretty bold (but good) sequences on it.

Struggled on lower crack resulting in undignified moves. Lovely delicate stuff higher up

Got a bit lost on the first pitch and ended up belaying half way up the slab having traversed a long way left. The crux is surely 5a (not 5b as in Scottish Rock) but a bit bold, and the 4b crack above is a lot like 4c. An excellent route.

Got lost after pitch 3, and then it tipped it down, escaped up something to the terrace and made our way home through the pouring rain and mist.
