Anti-faff 25 May AltLd O/S Superb route.The flake pitch is a pure joy, the bold slab pitch before it is quite alarming and I struggled to find a line that went at 4c. Small gear useful. As you might expect the SMC guidebook description is pure dogsh*t. Take care.

Annaclaire16 24 Jun, 2018 AltLd Led Pitch 2 & 5 as in Scottish Rock guide. Amazing position for most of the route but definitely felt the exposure on this one. Pitch 2 was wet but handholds mostly ok, sustained with good gear. Pitch 3 bold as per other comments. Dropped nuts on final pitch which resulted in decision to return via Great Gully to retrieve. DO NOT recommend this a descent route, starts out ok but descended into ever looser and steepening choss and were forced into a questionable abseil... thankfully nuts were eventually found and we were down in time for the last of the sunshine!

Finlandia 24 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S SMC Coe guide says P4 "gain a broad right-facing ramp". The ramp rises to the right so is left-facing. This questioning & 10m runout, wet at tricky moves, made this pitch slow. Linking 3&4 is fine - little gear to cause drag.. P3 start be sure to clip a high runner at the belay first, placing a nut using another nut might also be possible! Currently old blue sling of a friend zero in the middle of the lower steep section of P2 visible from the ground, helps seeing the right corner. P2 hard HVS on its own. If you want dry, leave more than 2 days to dry. Cold on this N wall even on a glorious day. And don't come down Great Gully-good to know there are still a few choss death gullies around..

Skotch85 1 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S The Ramp pitch is where the meat is as in holding enough fear in since gear is not very abundant. Further you need to evade enough slime on the first technical pitch not sure how well we got the conditions but my guess is it's always a little slimy. Great experience, serious mountain climb but with good route finding and an excellent last pitch.

The first half of P3 had no gear until the crux (5a according to the definitive guide, but maybe 4c) was over, which means a real possibility of a factor-2 fall. P5 was magnificent! One of the best pitches at the grade I've ever done. We might have gone off-route to R on P6 with 4c/5a, and the final move on P7 was 4b.

andymoin 8 Jun, 2008 AltLd O/S Awesome climbing, nothing to hard but loads of intimidation. The flake pitch has to be one of the best rock features I've climbed, it just kept coming. Right up there with centurion as the best mountain route so far.

clipskipper 14 May, 2008 AltLd O/S Managed to get off-route on both the first AND the second pitches! However, lead the exposed section of the fourth pitch to the flake OK, and enjoyed the flake enormously - great pitch.

James Humble ?Apr, 2008 AltLd O/S Hard first corner pitch very sustained and technical, moving round the corner is good and easy then the undercut flake is deffinately the highlight. Big cams or hex's usefull.
