Sure I've seconded this before. Felt quite bold until I spotted the sequence, then again quite tricky at the crux. Good value

Enjoyed this, hadn't really looked at guide before starting so may have gone a bit off route but pretty much stayed in centre of slab

Wasn't sure whether the wall on the right was in for the full tick, but I put my foot on it twice.

Started with intent to do Coign, but changed mind and headed up the middle. May have touched the right arete on the crux, making it easier. Should probably do again, but better.

SuperLee1985 17/Sep/16 Lead O/S

The crux is cruxy. Stepped left as early as possibly from the starting block, interesting moves here but fine once committed. Steady slab climbing up to the break at the steepening but then the crux was hard! (although well protected). Attempted a couple of times, standing on a tiny pebble with my right, pulling on a good undercut with my right hand and a poor ish hold with my right, i got my left off up to the break and expexted to be able to reach the top of the block but i was unable. Was a little alarmed at this point and sketchily decended back to the lower ledge. Eventually i used the right arrette but i feel this was cheeting. Topping out on the block was not too tricky and the upper slab was trivial.

I really enjoyed this route and found it a good confidence builder. Slab had plenty of grooves for hands and feet and when large holds were lacking, the rock was perfect and solid for smearing - trust your feet!

Put in loads of gear on the crux and then attempted the big rock-over using the pocket on the right. But, just couldn't get it, despite lots of attempts. In the end I used the arete on thr right to get the force needed for the rockover and moved through the crux. Not sure if this was allowed, and it certainly felt like an easy 5a move tbh. Still, thoroughly enjoable climb.
