The Pale Diedre appears twice ^

henry mcelroy about 12 hrs to do all three finishing in torridon!
pierro - 26/Nov/06

Do not expect easy routefinding on Central Buttress; every one that climbs it seems to find a different line. And don't go near it if you don't know you can finish it; retreat would be a loose nightmare.
Jamie B. - 04/Oct/05

sorry to see there is no comments, we were looking at walking this at the end of august, setting off from kinlochewe and finishing at torridon how long do you think it will take at an average pace?
