Hard, brutally pumpy climbing up the MM groove then out to the very steep arete above a rusty peg. The "adequate protection" can be hard to place.

Ticklists: 100 Aberdeen North East Classics!, North East Outcrops - 3 and 4 star routes.

Pumped out my tree. Felt surprising steady 2nd go not having to place any gear. Rusty peg is getting bad, but you can clip the sair fecht peg round the corner.

Had a go on Ally's gear at the end of the day, couldn't hold the ledge..... one for another day.

Either I'm stronger or it's fairly soft. Better protected than it looks too.

Didn't manage it once again, even with a bit of chalk to show the way. Lowered off after trying to climb to the ground from below the steep(er) bit. Maybe one day...

Sweet route, hard to find the good gear before the ledge

Led to show Cowan where the runners are that he should have placed 15 minutes earlier

I fought hard but needed a rest below the final bulge. Never been so pumped...
