45m. Route 120 (p91) Skye, 1982 guide.

Ticklists: Crack apprenticeship - Highland North.

masa-alpin 09/Aug Lead dnf

The opening move of the crack proper was hard (and wet), probably because of my (very) short reach. I caught the rope with my leg, and only the way to sort out was to climb down, but I could not after a great effort and weighted a gear in the end (people with the standard reach could simply reach the good hold from the top of the ledge). I had wasted too much energy by that time, and in the end climbed back down all the way. Terribly disappointed.

Belayed at base of OH crackV steep from the start. Worrying flake forms the holds & pro for 3m section quite low down so belaying to one side would have been wiser. It took the manhandling ok; not sure if would like to lob at that section. Eases to steep pod @ 15m where I rested on rope. Final OH fine but arms weren't thanking me. 30m long at a guess. http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=172573
