Went a bit off route on first pitch and we ended up doing crux of Freebird (E4 6a!) which I struggled on second. Old Cairngorms guidebook is misleading you should swing left at big overhang into main corner not right as stated. A good climb but a loose flake on second 5a pitch.

No way is this HVS 5a! E1 5b more like it and sustained at that on the 2nd pitch. I used 4 points of aid & took a tight rope on pitch 2 - Bha. Finishe up "Right Origional Finish"
