Intimidatingly overhung wall with some cracking routes on it like double overhang HVS5a***, diagonal VS4c*** and the fantastic cave route HS*** - don't overestimate the low grade the exposure is well worth it! We did cave route in three pitches for the fun of it - recommended. For those of you up in the mid E grades, Huntly's wall has a stunning finish about E3 6a out over the edge of the big roof.
