Ticklists: Scottish Rock Climbs ****.
This climb is in 3 logbooks, and on 2 wishlists.
The wall looked so scary we almost didn't set off, really glad we did. The whole route was slightly slimy but this just made it feel more adventurous.
I Fell off with hands just over the roof, this was quite scary because I wasn't sure if my last bit of gear was going to hold! (It did).
Then managed to send the pitch second go yo-yo style, very very pumped, very very scared, excellent!

Fell off below the roof when a hold snapped. Slumped onto 00 cam trying to get my feet above the lip. Lowered off to very good rest below the roof and got it 2nd go. Quite exciting pulling round the lip.

We warmed up on a soft E2 on the slabs tucked away to the south and did The Prozac Link E4 5c. I lead the Traverse of The Gods 5b bit and due to a lack of gear we split the final pitch in two (with a hanging stance high above the northern atlantic and a hard Cubby E5/E6 above, I suppose you don't want to have to retreat from there). This left
me with the trad crux, which was actually pretty nice, though I would say that not having fallen or broken any holds off.
An awesome route, the tech crux of which is blatantly on the Yosemite Crack pitch at the bottom if it's greasy.
