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.

Martin Bennett 24 Jul - Dave led 1st pitch but went direct up the crack rather than cross the slab to the left. Is this Creag Dhu Wall Direct Direct?! I led top pitch which is really nice with beautiful dark rough rock. Finding the descent in the jungle at the top was not easy - Dave didn't and ended up in Tremadog!
