Rockfax Description
The corner groove in the centre of the main buttress gives a sustained pitch. Start at the left-hand end of the terrace and move up into the base of the groove. At the first steep section step left onto the rib and move up to the slab below the groove and another bulge. Move left and regain the steeper groove above the bulge. Follow this to just below the top and swing right to finish up a flake/crack. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The main corner/groove about 10 m left of the obvious hairline crack of Killercranky. It has a small tree at about 5 m. The crack of Troy, which shares its start, can be seen rising up its left wall. Blocky at the start and finish with fine, sustained bridging between. Looks, and is, a bit dirty but the key holds are clean enough at present. A bit committing when you launch up into the apparent dirt without knowing this.

alice fuller ?Jul 2nd O/S In damp conditions. Idiosyncratic rock, sloping in unexpected directions, a groove so you can bridge, but steep and sloping footholds

Pete_Frost 17 Jul, 2017 2nd O/S Good climbing! Abseil off the two fixed wires at the top of Killercrankie, but ensure your ropes go over the edge to the right of the groove. There's a nasty little spike that will trap them otherwise, and you'll have to thrash up the gully of slime, through the notch of doom, then way down the ridge of heathery death free your ropes. Be warned.
