QuicNic 25 Aug AltLd O/S Fantastic weather. Reached base of route in 1.75 hrs using bikes along Loch Muick. Sunny and light breeze but plenty of seepage evident, it's been a wet summer. Found the climbing hard. Many cracks were wet and slimy. Top of 2nd and crux of 3rd pitch were wet. Top pitches were pretty vegetated and wet. I bottled and gave the hard pitches to Jon so only did the first and 5th although we joined the 3rd and much of 4th together. Vegetated scramble to escape! 4.5 hrs climbing, descended Central Gully and 1.5 hrs back to the carpark where it was 23 deg C. Great day out!

sparkass 4 Aug, 2018 AltLd O/S Wow, after a mellow day on Eagle Ridge yesterday this was quite different. With bikes to just beyond the shooting lodge it still took us about 3 hours to the base of the cliff, although we managed to get back from the summit in 2. We had initially planned to try different routes but they were all sopping wet and with a guidebook description of drying fast and visibly the driest part of the crag we did this route. The route was still pretty wet and it was windy and cold. I found it pretty hard, not the climbing as such but everything else - remoteness, weather conditions, pitch lengths and so on. A pretty full on day. Nonetheless and smashing route.

cacheson 1 Jul, 2017 AltLd O/S Probably slightly too wet to be a good idea. Crux on p2 and all of the 5a pitch were both dripping, so some hard climbing and diversions were required. The wind was also particularly bad on pitch 5. Did 8 pitches amounting to about 300m of climbing, eventually making it through the slippery stuff at the top. I led 1-5, and Sarah took over at the end. Just under 10 hours on route. Probably would not recommend this to the VS leader, though maybe it's much easier when it's bone dry. A warning to the next people: it looks as though the flake/pillar on pitch 3 at the top of the recess is pretty loose and disconnected. There is a lot of loose stuff in and around it, and with enough force it might trundle. Take care!

SarahA 1 Jul, 2017 AltLd Big day! Quite wet leading to some interesting route finding! Pitch 2 was pretty tough for VS, weirdly felt harder than the sopping 5a bit on pitch 4. Chris did all the leading on the actual route: I just topped us out through 3 pitches of bog and slime.

scoth 17 Sep, 2016 AltLd O/S A longer route than the guide book suggests, we worked out there is at least 200m of climbing. We also pitched the final scramble which is about 60m. The route got progressively wetter as we moved up. The 4th and 5th pitches were very testing, due to seepage. Started at 12.00 (too late) and topped out at 8.30. Great route, great crag, great day out.

carr0t 7 Sep, 2016 - Very sustained route and high in the grade. Felt like HVS in quite a few parts. The climbing is generally on clean and sound rock with the flaky arete being the only suspect rock. Incredible route, but very long hard and committing. Need to be comfortably climbing a grade or two above that to complete successfully. Conditions were 75% dry with sometimes substantial seepage.
