Fantastic first pitch, I wouldn't bother with the second, Hangmans Crack or Garotte would be better

Seconded this again. It's like 3 or 4 10 meter vs climb with quite tricky cruxes but ok rests between them, it feels solid at the grade but not HVS because it's not sustained enough. 3* classic IMO and one of the best vs pitches on the buchaille I've done,

Sustained, the first pitch does not give it up easy. Abbed off after first pitch due to midges, some excellent looking lines to go back and get on though! Another super day on the Coe!

Some lose rock at top of initial spike, Guide Book used infers start is crux but not so. Most of us will do this in a different style from the first ascensionist - see Creagh Dhu Climber page 71

Bit go-ey for the grade, though could have something to do with 2 months off climbing. Finished up Hangman's.

Went over during Open Canoe Course in the evening. I laced the route and found it hard. Hard sustained route all at 4c, good pro and mainly positive rock.

Did second pitch to finish shackle route then returned to lead the first which was even better but felt very hard for vs 4c being pretty tech, thrucksy and sustained.

awesome route. Graeme, who led the climb, found picking out the route difficult. I am not used to climbing VS and so found difficult. Enjoyed the first move past overhanging rock very much. While following right hand crack the step across on to the slab very difficult. All in all enjoyed route very much, even though was scary on the rock.

Great climb but had some very loose rock (I removed quite a large rock from the second pitch after Leighn stood on it and nearly dropped it on me below). A good piece of advice for glencoe routes, factor in some extra time for finding your route and don't risk being on the top when it gets dark. That was a scary descent...
