40m. The spectacular leaning prow of the North Peak is one of the most iconic lines in the UK.

It's fair to say it is the best route I've climbed to date. Lead with pre-placed gear. Going back next weekend to lead it again placing gear.

It's hard to write a comment that does this route the justice it deserves, just look at the pictures and go climb it.

Second attempt! Gutted to have blown it on the slab only 2m from the top on the flash attempt. Stripped the route afterward and checked out the holds on the abseil. Camped up for the night, then took the tick first thing the next morning. Pretty chuffed! Without a doubt, the best bit of rock I've ever climbed. Will definitely be back for a repeat ascent!

Loads of beta from watching Ad on it. Placed everything on lead. So good and really chuffed to do this. Pegs all pretty rusty and not many options to back up, but there are quite a few. 4* route.

What an amazing route/ line/ setting. So intimidating. Spent yesterday working it all out on a top rope. Today top roped it clean then went for the lead but fluffed the top headwall after forgetting my sequence. I'll be back!

After a 20-minute waiting game with the cold, mist and cloud whilst halfway up in the rest, I finally got my head together to leave the rest and do it first headpoint after a failed onsight go last week and a toprope session before the lead today. Left two nuts on the ground, got a quickdraw stuck and kicked a nut out of a crack but got there in the end! What a line.

Second Onsight ascent I think. Knowing Gordon had done it before me and broken the Dalriada duck made it more possible in my head. 100% agree with Ali's sentiment, equal to if not the best trad route I have ever done. As insight as you can get given the amount of photos I have seen. Steady to onsight until the headwall where spotting the actual holds from the non-holds is a bit tricky. That nearly claimed mine.

Lead after watching Neil go well off route on 1st crux and fall on 2nd crux. Best trad route I've done, amazing 4* classic. Thankfully not as hard as it looks! Pegs in good condition.

Ground up 2nd go, leaving gear. Fell off in pod 1 move from jug onsight, after 1hr of nervous over gripping and general wanting my mammy! Awesome effort watching Ally flash/ onsight it in between my attempts. What a line, but built it up far to much and ended up a gibbering mess on first attempt! Best looking Line in Scotland!
