Punching above my weight for first outdoor climb of the year. Good climb through the undercut. Solid kneebar when placing a nut.

Felt much harder and more sustained than Via McNiven. Great wee route.

Great route. Crux was brilliant once I got a bit of gear in to protect the move. Lower moves are polished so care needed.
