Erik B on the UKC Forums commented:
"They have clearly found a route up one of the fiercest and most improbable and finest winter cliffs in the UK, adventurous onsight ground-up climbing at its best, all done in a single push with a lot of climbing done in the dark!"
The God Delusion starts on the steep wall between Gully of the Gods and The God Father on Beinn Bhan, Applecross. The route meets The God Father after four pitches and then takes a direct line up the centre of the face to the right of The God Father.
The pair first attempted the line a few weeks ago, but this was thwarted when Robertson pulled off a block and took a fall. They returned on the 10th of December, leaving the car at approximately 1am, to have enough time to complete the route.

The God Father is still unrepeated as far as we know, and was first climbed by Martin Moran.
We hope to have more information on this amazing ascent soon. We are running a winter round-up next week, detailing new route activity from Wales, The Lakes and Scotland.
