80m, 3 pitches. Next to Cathedral Chimney, climbs the obvious pillar by way of cracks and turf.

Another of Scotland's fine mountain sport routes. 4 fixed pieces on the first pitch and an in situ 4 piece belay. The route is loads of fun though.

Steep. Cornice made the exit interesting.

A lot of cracks iced up, did it in 4 pitches. Lead P2. Downclimbed on P4 to let Neil tunnel through the cornice, I think he actually enjoyed it!

Thin conditions but bomber turf. Jon led the second main pitch and climbed the corner/wall direct. I went to the left and found easier ground at the crest of the pillar.

Lovely wee route, took the crack on the 2nd pitch direct which was probably better than skirting left but a bit trickier than grade suggests and a bit eliminate.

A fine wee route and a crackin day. Less eventful than my previous effort!

Sandy Simpson 13/Dec/15 AltLd

A good route but maybe not as highly rated as the guidebook suggests, Dave o didn't jump off the route/cliff this time so that was a bonus

With Stu coxon, really good route, sustained but with loads of gear, defiantly earns its three stars.
