**** A slightly overhanging, pumpy wall with juggy holds leads to the niche. Move right then up to the ledge. Sling the block and belay.
The next pitch takes a left rising traverse to the tree, which seems tame after the scary wall below. Abseil off the tree or, if you like greenery, continue on up. A Creag Dubh classic.

climberuk 4 Sep, 2010 AltLd O/S First 2 pitches. Led pitch 1. Loved it. A bit of composure required to commit to the moves from the peg runner up into the niche but its fine. Jugs where you need them. Final move into niche is bold due to run out. 2nd pitch is great too. Ranks as one of my favourite climbs.
