This climb goes to the left of craig dhu wall up a large sloping left crackline. 2 overhangs on the left. Above the first overhang move out left smearing and holding on to the undercuts as you traverse left to a slanting crack and safety. Crux can be easily protected. The second pitch is interesting and moves over 2 overlaps to the top. A tree on the left can be used to abseil down with sling & link in situ.

90 mins c2c. in 1 big pitch, the main part of the route going direct is good, out across the hanging slab on undercuts.the upper groove is balancy and bold.

Excellent, led both pitches, traverse out left to avoid the overhang felt fairly full on for VS! Lovely contrasting 2nd pitch where you need to be carefully to protect.

Lead p1 to the hollow block belay. Tricky move, definitely 5a. Jess put in a good effort leading the top of the normal Creag Dhu Wall, considering she hasn't climbed outdoors for ages. A great little day out.
