A few large wobbly blocks enroute!

Lead P1 (apart from a tricky steep start, this was just a scramble). Some good moves on P2. Harder climbing on P3 - we were probably off route...

Not easiest route finding, did alternative first pitch followed by traverse back into route.

Lawrie Brand - Lead O/S - 16/Sep/14 with MOD

Led pitches 1 and 3. First pitch is nothing more than a scramble - seriously, don't bother roping up. Third pitch is lovely, and views are awesome.
Jude - AltLd O/S - 10/Aug/14 with TizzyA

led pitch 2, Jude led 1 & 3

Good value climbing on pitches 2 and 3. Excellent rock, gear and situations. The climbing can be as easy or hard as you want it to be, and there are some cracking options to be had (lay-backs with feet hanging over space anyone?)
Julie Black - Lead - 25/Mar/12 with Evan

Quite broken in places, route finding was main challenge. Nice layback. Lead Pitches 1 & 3.

Just after rain and rather damp, not the best conditions for torridonian sandstone but worth it just for the view.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 13/Aug/11

First pitch is crap. But thereafter its quite pleasant. Its not amazing, but VDs rarely follow a clean line. Nice way up a fine hill when you're full of lurgee like we were!
iceicebaby - 05/Jun/11 with Sam Wood

Not sure we'd gone the right way and the next bit looked pretty hard so we bailed after a pitch and a half. Must try harder next time.

Good position, fantastic weather, great views of Suilven, Ben More Coigach, Sgurr an Fhidlier, Cul Beag and others. Continued along the scramble descending by the footpath off the col between the East & West Buttresses.
