Climbed there many years ago one chilly Easter Sunday, in shirtsleeves. It can be a suntrap during the cooler months. Did Limehouse Blues, Galloway Corner, Crack & Corner and Salty Dog - all of which were worthwhile.

If you have to climb one route on Meikle Ross, Mellow Yellow, VS 4c is the one........Fantastic!
