Great route and the crux groove wasn't so bad once I'd got in it. Lots of seagulls looking for nesting sites but there didn't seem to be any chicks yet. There were a pair on the ledge off route to the left. Apparently we were close enough to merit some close swoops!

Great fun, got to our bags before the tide came in!

Tom Baird 03/Apr/10 Lead O/S

This is a great route. Pain Pillar gets the plaudits at the Hawkcrqaig but IMHO this is a much better climb. Exposed and airy to being and finishing with a somewhat bold pull through and overhang.

Ewan lead the route to within ~3m of the nose then downclimbed chimney arete. I lead the route (leaving his gear in place) and then finished off the last overhanging section. Entertaining moves through the nose but not as bad as it looked from below!

the only vaguely 5a section is the start (as long as you stay right) the top out is more like 4b and the midsection standard straight forward hawkcraig VS.
