15m. The direct start to the overlap is a more aesthetic line but is harder than the original. A big rockover on the lower wall leads straight into the mantle (bold but protectable with forethought).

Top roped once or twice before, shunted my way up it today, abbed down to brush it and lead after a little time to gather my mind. Bold to the micro wire crack, good climbing after!

Bold lead to say the least but a superb route and a true inspiring test piece of Auchinstarry. Would advise morning conditions because the arête bakes in the sun and friction depletes fast either than that do your best to trust some little wires when placed. I only found two bomb placements but I have heard of people somehow cramming more in so good luck. Feels like a true route since Promontory isn’t in.

Awesome line. Clean on top rope second go. Might try to lead one day. Need bigger balls.

I brushed the holds but claim the onsight since indeed I brushed the wrong ones...;) Thin moves with tricky microwires. Chuffed.

Harrowing. Glad I did it but I really shouldn't have. Scared doesn't even begin to describe the emotions I was going through.
