Led this with Danny seconding. Struggled at the crux and had my first 'proper' trad off, and first nut blowing out. Second caught, started again and finished clean (after a rock tantrum!)

Chris lead the start this but heard his finger go pop so lowered down and I completed the route re clipping his first few cams, abbed for the gear and that was that. Nice jamming. Yoyo ascent.

Route looked pretty powerful from bottom Kev plugged lower cams and a shaky nut, i back it with another cam then went for the bold move upwards.

No way even close to E1 hard VS or HVS if you like! I'm told it is if the arête is climbed for the start!

Scottish Rock and SMC guide have this route as VS 5a, which is maybe closer to what I'd say the grade is, but I placed gear halfway up crack, then downclimbed a bit before finishing it, which made it less strenuous. found decent holds outwith the crack as well. nice-looking route, though quite short.
