So this is one of the last big projects left at craigmore for me and man is this a bold climb, this requires just above everything you can give to even link the bottom section and never mind that the real crux is coming out the overhanging portion of the climb, while trying to plug some ridiculous micro wires and cams that are very questionable At the moment i climb around E2/E3 on redpoint and onsighting trad around HVS/E1 and this project is a good couple of years out my league. If anyone attempts this i would love to be there to see it.

I think this may have been the first on-sight ascent? Route was regularly top-roped by people before this.
