85m, 3 pitches. Right of Goldfinger there is a stepped ramp-line running left to right up to a point overlooking Noe Gully. This is best seen by standing well over to the right and down from Noe Gully. Belay as for Goldfinger.
1. 35m Move off right from the belay over to the base of an obvious stepped fault line taken higher up by Goldfinger. Climb up and right into the start of the ramp line. Step right then up and left to then follow the ramp line via a series of steps to an obvious belay ledge.
2. 35m Continue along the ramp-line by a series of ever steepening steps to the crux step, an awkward right-facing corner with an offwidth crack. Pull out right from the top of this and continue until a final pull onto a ledge and belay overlooking Noe Gully.
3. 15m A couple of options can now be taken, however most exciting is to step down and right from the belay onto the left-hand wall of Noe Gully. Make a couple of steep moves directly up the wall to easier ground before a final awkward move to the top.

Robertgiddy 25 Nov, 2018 AltLd dog Started this season as I started last - on Ben Cruachan. Dubious conditions but felt it was white enough to have a go. Two falls off P2, great gear tho. Would agree with VI 7 today but hardly climbed any tech 7 so not hard to know!

iainballantyne 25 Nov, 2018 AltLd O/S Pretty spicy for the first route of the season! Found this all pretty thin, almost came off so many times! Would agree with others, it's definitely at the top of its grade...

Stuart the postie 28 Dec, 2017 AltLd Second time climbed this, didn't feel any easier! Fully hoared conditions, best route on crag. Perhaps VI,7?

tomdude 12 Dec, 2015 AltLd Felt hard, particularly the middle pitch. Maybe I'm unfit! Very good climb though. Fantastic view out from this crag.
